I understand that politics is off-topic, but this policy affects operational aspects of the 'Net.

Just to be clear, L3 is saying content providers should not have to pay to deliver content to broadband providers who have their own product which has content as well.  I am certain all the content providers on this list are happy to hear L3's change of heart and will be applying for settlement free peering tomorrow.  (L3 wouldn't want other providers to claim the Vyvx or CDN or other content services provided by L3 are competing and L3 is putting up a "toll booth" on the Internet, would they?)
