Now that liberals are winning on net neutrality, Republicans want a compromise

"The Republican bill, sponsored by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), is "network neutrality in name only," according to the legal scholar and net-neutrality supporter Barbara van Schewick."

"Van Schewick and her Stanford University co-author Morgan Weiland offer an even more scathing assessment of the Republican proposal, detailing seven different ways the bill falls short of full protection for an open internet. They note that the law includes several vague terms that could create loopholes for undermining network neutrality and gives the FCC limited authority to close these loopholes."
