    After ISPs were caught blocking customers' access to cost-effective
    telephone services like Skype and intentionally degrading the performance of
    peer-to-peer file sharing software like BitTorrent, the need for network
    neutrality protections became clear. Julius Genachowski was appointed chair
    of the Federal Communications Commission and he promised to introduce
    regulation that would prohibit internet service providers (ISPs) from
    discriminating against or blocking lawful online content. Disappointingly,
    reports NJ Today, Genachowski's network neutrality proposal is littered with
    loopholes. The proposal fails to restore FCC authority over ISPs, which all
    but ensures court challenges to any attempt at enforcing network neutrality.



    "Public involvement in the net neutrality fight will be a critical factor in
    determining whether or not the FCC can pass an improved network neutrality
    law. Indeed, public involvement on network neutrality - perhaps best
    exemplified by the Save The Internet coalition - was critical in overcoming
    the flood of ISP lobbying money and keeping the issue alive over the past
    few years when pundits dismissed it as dead or at least on life support.
    This final phase of the policy fight over network neutrality is no
    different; the future of the internet is literally in your hands."
