Court again

Just because VZW lost this one, doesn't mean AT&T can't go after it in another court and win the case.

Also net neutrality has already been ruled before that the FCC has no legal standings on the issue since they do not regulate the internet, only airwaves and communication services. The Internet is an information service- which soon would include telephone as well.

AT&T could sue too. But all cases against the FCC end up in the same court. You can't venue shop when suing the FCC. All cases are heard in the United States Court of Appeal FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT. It is unlikely the same court would decide differently if AT&T also sued.

What's the deal with the caps? That wasn't needed.

I just copied and pasted the court info from the decision. The caps were in the document. Just the way it came out on an iPad copy of a PDF file.

Ahh, but they may not rule the net as a 'service', but they DO, CAN and WILL say what those frequencies can be used for. I see it as a catch 22. All one has to do is talk to some old ham op's and you will see that the FCC does rule content in the background. Not much as changed from the old days, just the reg book is thicker.

I think maybe the reason Verizon lost is because this involves WIRELESS data, and the court is ruling that the FCC has authority over the AIRWAVES, stretching back to 1934.
