What I don't understand is how the major ISP's seem to enjoy the protections of common carriage but not the responsibilities. If they have the rights of a common carrier, they should also treat all traffic alike. And that means serve all customers equally. If they have the freedom to treat traffic differently, then they shouldn't be a common carrier. And that means accepting liability for the content they carry. Filesharing, piracy, porn, etc. should be their responsibility to police. If they want the rights to sell different service levels, they should accept the responsibility that goes with that. Unfortunately, they currently do enjoy the best of both worlds. It's not a fair arrangement, and that alone makes a strong argument in favor of network neutrality as the only arrangement that is both fair and feasible.
