"Net Neutrality" - where only one party in the flow of bits could *possibly* be negligent, malicious, etc.

I was being playful with the whole "law" thing. 
I doubt the users would be able to sue me due to title 2 roll backs. "Net 
Neutrality" allows ISPs to block any service they deem fit, right? So the 
first step wouldn't even get past discovery to get to court. Anyhow, it 
would be sufficiently beneficial if we just had a single contact within 
hulu. It would be even better if hulu came into the 21st century and 
supported IPv6 like any other modern service. 
For others who need this resolved for hulu, these are the subnets I 
NATed/VPNed to get it working. 
8.28.124.0/23 
23.0.0.0/8 
184.84.0.0/14 
199.60.116.0/24 
199.127.192.0/22 
199.200.48.0/22 
208.91.156.0/22 
208.98.171.96/27
