Re: China anyone?
Isn't this where the ISPs form a collective and build a warchest to lobby with?
I would charge the content companies with traffic fees!
Seriously, an ISP has to be responsible for its content passing through? And if they are proactive, the tab will be incredible (annual support fees and licenses w/updates).
Heck, my firewall vendor keeps nailing me with subscription updates and other nickel-dime services (oh, you want an ethernet port? $100/yr. Oh, you need gigabit? another $50/yr. First 50 users are free...but hey, you want 25 more...chaching)
No wonder they tax subscriptions now...
I think Ed Whiteacre should charge the RIAA and MPAA for all the pirated content that crosses his tubes every day. Every song, album, and movie. Then there should be the monitoring fees. Then he should charge them a tax on all the charges.
