3 Common Carrier Regulation Title II and Computer II regulation is what made the Internet possible Service upon request, non-discrimination, interconnection and no control of content Common carriers also get liability protection and tariff benefits

6 Net Neutrality FCC View Four principles Consumers can access lawful content Consumers can attach devices Consumers can run applications Consumers are entitled to competition among providers

7 Net Neutrality -- Neutral Net View The FCC’s principles are too narrow They don’t address rights of content and service providers Key elements are missing -- interconnection, service upon request, attachment of devices, collocation for interconnection and caching The FCC assumes common carriage, but has removed the legal obligation in its orders
