The Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) continues to warn against ‘net neutrality’ and increased regulatory initiatives on the Internet stressing the belief that a light regulatory footprint by the government is what has allowed for such innovation and expansive commerce and economic output by way of the Internet. Today, TPA President David Williams submitted another public comment (view here) regarding a draft proposal for new rules on open Internet policy from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) including the possibility of a reclassification of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) under Title II, which would most certainly result in more regulation and more government control over the Internet.

In an erratic defense of the cost versus effectiveness of USGBC's LEED green building certification system (see the USA Today investigative series), USGBC's Rick Fedrizzi shouts that this is a "social movement" and "we are right" at their annual Green Build conference in San Francisco.
