[Discuss] OT: FCC's Open Internet Order

I didn't read his analysis too closely, but he seems to be coming down
against the FCC and it seems the guy is biased:

Quote from his Curriculum Vitae: "I am attempting to make sense of the Net
Neutrality issue with an eye toward understanding what constitutes
reasonable service differentiation and price discrimination by Internet
Service Providers and what amounts to an unfair trade practice.  I also
examine the lawful scope of regulatory authority the FCC currently has
and *strongly
believe the Commission has no business* extending federal Internet policy
to content, applications and software that ride "over the top" of broadband


"The blog will concentrate on important legal, regulatory, marketplace and
cultural issues that warrant closer scrutiny particularly in light of the
proliferation of "research" that supports a particular stakeholder's
viewpoint *without having disclosed direct or indirect financial


"He also provides *consultancy services* in a variety of areas..."

but without any mention of his direct or indirect financial sponsorship

(emphasis mine)
