Summary "Chris Marsden argues for a 'middle way' on net neutrality, a problem of consumer and media policy without easy answers that cannot be left to self-regulated market actors. He looks at market developments and policy responses in Europe and the United States, draws conclusions and proposes regulatory recommendations. His holistic solution considers ISPs' roles in the round, including their 'three wise monkeys' legal liabilities for content filtering. Co-regulation is an awkward compromise between state and private regulation, with constitutionally uncertain protection for end-users and the appearance of a solution with only partial remedy for end-users against private censorship."--BOOK JACKET.
