The FCC Ruling is NOT about Freedom

You can find information that confuses the issue, which is really about treating ISPs as common carriers.  The best description that I have found about the issues comes from a webcast by Leo Laporte – his techguy podcast #1449.  Here’s a link if you have an interest.
