Just passing on some information that may be of interest to anyone.
Entitlement vs. laws, and a company's TOS/AUP I'm sure are all involved in
one form or another, as with anything else concerning the use of a network
to access the Internet or other service.

As far as I am concerned, this whole Internet and who controls (owns) it, is
just getting dumber and dumber by the minute. Congress, the FCC, state and
local governments, special interest groups, the Bell's, xLEC's etc, etc,
etc., can all suck eggs.
