Begin forwarded message: From: Brett Glass <[email protected]> Date: November 9, 2005 10:43:40 AM EST Here's the latest draft of the Internet regulation bill, dated November 3rd. Note that, like earlier versions, it subjects all ISPs and VoIP providers to intensive Federal regulation and requires them to register before providing service. It also pre-empts state and local control over rights of way. For the draft text, see http://energycommerce.house.gov/108/news/11032005_Broadband.pdf --Brett Glass
I have to admit I like this part... It somewhat addresses my concerns about the monopolies that Chris Morrow and Sean Donelan are perpetrating on us (just kidding guys...).
Since port 80 and port 25 are lawful services everyone offering broadband will have to drop filters and provide full routing! Can you hear me now? Why yes, port 80 and port 25 are open, of course I can hear you.
