Yoo v. Wu

A debate on net neut* hosted by Legal Affairs Magazine. Professor Yoo notes that what some people would call a violation of net neutrality may actually be an effort to develop a business model that best serves consumers, and adds:

At this point, it is impossible to foresee which architecture will ultimately represent the best approach. When it is impossible to tell whether a practice would promote or hinder competition, the accepted policy response to permit the practice to go forward until actual harm to consumers can be proven. This restraint provides the room for experimentation upon which the normal competitive processes depend. It also shows appropriate humility about our ability to predict the technological future.

Two years ago PFF published a compelling Progress on Point by Yoo on this very subject.
