Net Neutrality - Yahoo, Comcast and Google

Net Neutrality became an issue earlier this month once again as Comcast faced class action lawsuit(s) for allegedly blocking some bittorrent and other IP's.

Yahoo was also called to task this month, testifying before Congress, and making numerous apologies for turning over information to a foreign government which apprarently caused the imprisonment of a dissident.

The issue is clearly a difficult problem for those who maintain a high profile on the Internet and continue to grow globally.

We found a great piece on Thursday, posted by a Google employee, which describes their efforts, and in particular, international government regulations and blogs. The post by Rachel Whetstone makes interesting reading and can be found here.
