Net neutrality is the concept that internet users should be the ones who control what they see on the net, not internet service providers (ISPs) or the government. Among the specific rights lobbied for under net neutrality are:
- The deregulation of content (other than that which is criminal, such as child pornography);
- Open access to all sites and platforms;
- The prevention of ISPs from charging extra for access to "premium" sites.
Naturally, corporatists don't like the idea of net neutrality. For instance, Glenn Beck has compared net neutrality proponents to Marxists. This may be because opponents and paid shills have likened it to the Fairness Doctrine as applied to the Internet, even though it has nothing to do with political speech.
