Net Neutrality Argument Today

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals will hear today the Verizon challenge of the FCC’s net neutrality regulations.  It will be interesting to see what this court, which is often hostile to any government regulations, particularly from the FCC, will do. Verizon and other internet ISPs argue that the Net content they carry is their own constitutionally protected “speech” in the net neutrality context, while they also argue that it is not their own speech in terms of copyright, libel, or other liability for the content itself. This LA Times editorial puts the issues and this inconsistency nicely, here.
