Verizon Policy Statement on Net Neutrality

Many other organizations who were innovating will be affected by the new
rules.  Many of those organizations are very small and cannot afford the
army of lawyers that Verizon can.

Judgements as to whether Net Neutrality helps or harms any specific
industry will be inevitably guided by politics.  The mere fact that
politics has become a guiding factor in Internet-related public policy is
an indicator that we must tread cautiously.

And, no, I do not think recent regulatory efforts have been suitably
cautious.  Enacting unpublished rules violates the spirit and history of
open design, open discussion, and open standards that have made the
Internet what it is today.
