Abstract

Article Excerpt: In the waning days of 2017, the Federal Communications Commission made a move to rescind regulations enforcing net neutrality. Voting along ideological lines, the commission stripped away Obama-era directions generally perceived as rules to treat the internet more like a public utility and less like a purely private venture. I mention this not to open a new discussion on net neutrality, but to frame what may arise from an almost opposite approach to managing the internet. Those opposite modes are taking shape in Europe.
