Network Neutrality

As described by the ALA (American Library Association), network neutrality means not discriminating against users based on content or services they provide or access. The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has tried to regulate ISPs (Internet Service Providers) with network neutrality rules.

However, in a decision issued on April 6, 2010 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in favor of Comcast, an ISP. Read more about the decision in the New York Times and The Street.
