Re: AT&T block ur YouTube + Facebook

Right now they have the safe harbor protections under the DMCA. Who has the stronger lobby on Capitol Hill? Telecom or MPAA/RIAA?

Doesn't matter. MPAA/RIAA calls the shots if "Telecom" wants to carry TV.

and if all the major ISPs stood together and said no? You think they would pull their content from every major wireline provider? They'd have no ad revenue and it would be a disaster for them.

That is the problem, though; all the "major ISPs" aren't in the ISP business, they are in the entertainment business. There is nothing like a 30% profit margin in wireline communications. You want the big profit margin? Forget farming, retail, and wireline communications. The big money is in law, medicine, and entertainment (including sports).
