The U.S. Supreme Court overturned a ruling Monday that
required cable operators to open up their high-speed
Internet lines to rivals.

The decision is a big victory for the Federal Communications
Commission and major telecommunications companies, including
Charter Communications, Time Warner Cable and SBC Communications.

On the losing side are small Internet service providers,
including Earthlink, and a host of local governments.
