[Wired] Internet Freedom Day: This Year We Go to War for Net Neutrality

Marvin Ammori, fellow at the New America Foundation and a lawyer who represents technology companies on internet policy issues, describes the impact of recent developments in the USA that go against net neutrality and the importance of the "reclassification" required to protect it effectively.

"[...] Because with the recent ruling, cable and phone companies like Verizon and AT&T now have the legal right to block any website, webpage, blog, video, web technology, app, cloud sync technology, or anything else running online through their pipes. Put another way, Comcast or Time Warner Cable can now block Netflix, BitTorrent, or even this article. They can choose to provide better service to some entities and not others, letting some websites load very, very slowly and others load instantly (for a fee!)."
