Net Neutrality

Internet neutrality is a hot topic issue in the U.S. Congress at the moment.  The book Net Neutrality presents a concise forum for the discussion and explanation of different aspects regulating to the use and abuse of the world wide web.  Who should regulate the speed, source, and options of what is available on the internet?  Should the speed of the internet service be charged accordingly?  Is government involvement a good or bad idea?  The pros and cons of the debate are succinctly presented for consideration.  The legal battle is between the internet being a public, open use utility or a private, for-profit business.  How to regulate in order to protect consumers from high usage charges and yet stimulate internet businesses to grow, expand and innovate is the issue. This book gives a simple, beginning approach to the new problems of the information age and is recommended for high school libraries.
