The Open Internet & Innovation

Simple Theft by the Mob

I am appalled, but not surprised by what I see here.


This is the rule of the mob. Innovators and investors pour billions of dollars and years of their lives into building the internet infrastructure, and now that it is up, working and heavily used, the users decide that the builders should lose the right to control what they have built.


The statements that "the government" built the internet is incorrect. Yes, in some cases, government was involved, but the dominant force in building the internet was private investment.


We (users) have no right to tell network operators what to do with their private property. End of story.
