thank you Vint.
Gordon, from what I read the "interfere" part was specifically called
out in the Bill...
folks please note Vint's remarks on common carriage. This stuff
gets very complicate very fast and i do not have it all at the tip
of my tongue by any means. Vint did engage with Fred Goldstein,
Andrew Odlyzko, David Isenberg and others in a discussion of this
about 3 weeks ago.
Please note also Vint's remark:
If ISPs were to inspect packets and interfere with those of
competing application providers (voice, video), I would consider
that a violation of the principle of network neutrality.
I have NOT been reading this bill carefully myself
dangerous i know. BUT if i understand it correctly this is
precisely what this bill would allow and this is NOT I think what
any of us want. For whatever my opinion is worth I hope you all
will oppose this loud and clear.
I have probably missed some of the "gotcha's". Do you have the
sections where BITS providers will be allowed to interfere/inspect?
The inspect part does not appear to be referenced.
Here is the section I am talking about...
SEC. 104. ACCESS TO BITS.

(b), each BITS provider has the duty—3
