These are nowhere NEAR the same thing. Let me give an example.
Let's say that my webserver is something I want to be considered
priority over all other hosts on my network. I simply set up my QOS
to make that traffic priority over ANY other traffic on my network.
Same thing if it is a VOIP server. I am not changing the traffic in
any way, nor am I restricting their traffic. I am simply insuring
(as far as I can) the traffic that I want to be priority on MY
network. That is not what happened with that other case (and you
know this). If I do what I described above, can Google come in and
sue me because THEIR web traffic is not prioritized on my network?
Not at all. Having said that, if Google wants to come in and pay me
$XXX (maybe a couple more X's), then you can BET that I WILL add
priority to their traffic. Not sure how you see any kind of
parallel between adding priority to one traffic and not another, vs
blocking a certain class of traffic.
