ISPs are not broadcasters, Supreme Court says

The cultural coalition expressed disappointment with the ruling in a statement released early Thursday afternoon, saying laws must be applied in a ???technology neutral??? manner as media evolves to become increasingly digital-centric.

???The principles of the Broadcasting Act continue to be sound but, with this decision, their application remains inconsistent,??? the group said.

Technology isn’t the neutrality these incumbent tax farmers are seeking.

To give them what they want you’d have to be more than technology neutral, you’d have to purpose, capability and functionally neutral to consider ISPs broadcasters.
