Does this leave the way open for broadband providers to censor or restrict what websites their customers can access, a la China?  If so, I don't like the thought of what a person can access being determined by the highest bidder...

For its part, the FCC offered no details on its next step, but stressed that it remains committed to the principle of net neutrality.

"Today's court decision invalidated the prior commission's approach to preserving an open Internet," the agency's statement said. "But the court in no way disagreed with the importance of preserving a free and open Internet; nor did it close the door to other methods for achieving this important end."


Why am I hoping for once a federal agency means what it says and will stop at nothing to enforce its beliefs?
