net neutrality for dummies

What is net neutrality and how does its latest setback affect marketers?

Net neutrality, or challenges to it, hit the news again last week when a US federal appeals court took the side of Verizon and ruled against parts of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC's) net neutrality rules.

The world needs to move towards a more open internet and remove the “digital handcuffs” that stifle innovation and democracy, according to EC vice president for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes.

But she also criticised the complicated licensing systems for copyrighted material in Europe, stating that copyright societies were lying when they claimed to be working to protect artists.
