FCC Chairman on What It Means to Regulate the Internet
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski gets a little peeved when people suggests that he wants to regulate the Internet.
“I don’t see any circumstances where we’d take steps to regulate the Internet itself,” Genachowski said Tuesday, during a meeting with Wall Street Journal reporters and editors. “I’ve been clear repeatedly that we’re not going to regulate the Internet.”
That may be the case, but when pressed, he admitted he was referring to regulating Internet content rather than regulating Internet lines.
