A federal court has ruled that the Federal Communications Commission lacks the authority to impose net neutrality rules on intenet providers. A setback for the FCC, and possibly consumers. A win for big telecomm companies like Comcast. From Information Week:

Net Neutrality has been backed by companies like Google, which fear that network operators like AT&T and Comcast will engage in discriminatory pricing against certain kinds of Internet traffic, like VOIP data or video packets, to insulate their voice and television businesses from competition.

It has also been central to the FCC's recently released National Broadband Plan.
