    Jeez man this is bad for the ENTIRE WORLDS internet users , cause in one form or another the major cable companies run globe wide and are linked to the smaller ones in one form or another.

    In the Uk England we have a very competitive telecoms market now especially with regards to broadband access.

    Since the telecom giant BT had to give up its monopoly we have had a reall BOOM in broadband and ISP'S, and most of the major ones are, YES, linked to the bigger american ones in all but name, some in name IE AOL Time Warner to name one etc.

    Companies actually governing the internet will seriosuly clogg up the entire net with premium services and second rate access, not to mention thousands of new liable legal restraints and other corporate laws attached to using their services to publish x,y,z etc.

    This will be a nightmare!
