    Quick addendum. These firms are by default dumb pipes, they provide a service to facilitates our communication but it is our communication not theirs. For instance they have no right to collect our speech and words for resale or claim ownership of them and no right that could ever be accepted to sell our private speech or pass it along for gain when it would damage us- current rules may be out of date but there is a limit to what any public can accept in the way of harm and injustice.

    On the other hand when people as individual citizens buy something they are going to use it as they see fit, edit out commercials etc..- short of making a profit by spreading it and regardless of missguided laws- they may even give it away. When it comes to speech real speech not debt as speech engaged in by a fraud of personhood, money and profit do not matter at all.

    I couldn't agree more that broadcast TV needs to go away. Its a pile of brainwashing and propaganda that is destroying out society.

    While we are at it we should be very clear that neutrality is speech. Can we imagine AT&T claiming that it should be party to our private conversations or be able to interject in our conversations? Can we imagine a local toll road operator closed to our home trying insist on having a say in who can visit our homes? Relative to our rights as a public and our need to be able to communicate especially on political issues the profit concerns and motives (regardless of precedent) have no weight. We as a public own these markets outright.
