FCC votes to take greater control of the Web

Government 1

GovTechGuy (1267056) writes "The FCC voted today to open an inquiry into how the broadband industry is regulated, the first step in a controversial attempt to assert greater regulatory control over Internet Service providers. In a 3-2 vote the Democratic members of the Commission voted to move forward with the FCC's proposal to reclassify broadband as a telecom service, increasing the regulation it is subject to. The move also has large implications for net neutrality, which FCC Commissioner Julius Genachowski has made a focus under his watch."

They're not regulating "the web". They're (talking about) regulating ISPs. It's the same as the difference between regulating what you can say on the phone, and regulating the phone company.
