I think insuring that companies do not abuse markets in which they have a commanding share could be much better handled by a private licensing agent.

You don't even need that--all you need is competition. Notice that the big fear is with big cable and DSL companies doing this, and that's because they're given monopolies in their areas by local governments.

Once again what IS net neutrality?
Seriously...

Is it the government wanting to force internet providers to treat all content equally or something like that?
If so, why not allow competition to do that job by getting rid of current corporatism such as patents and local monopolies.

I ask because I've never been sure on what the situation is or what the proposal is.

That was epic failure on JaguarJ0nes' part.
