It is NOT last year's news. 
The battlefield has moved, the enemies the same....

Look at the FCC page again and see:

	The FCC issued an unrelated public notice, DA 98-2,
	on January 5, 1998 in connection with a report to
	Congress on universal service.	Pursuant to the FCC's
	1998 appropriations legislation, the Commission must
	submit a report by April 10, 1998 on several issues
--->	including the legal status of Internet services under
	the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Comments in response
	to the public notice are due January 20, 1998, and reply
	comments are due February 2, 1998. Informal comments may
	be sent by email to <[email protected]>.
