Eric Klinker, CEO of BitTorrent is sure that now only the public will decide whether ISPs and application providers act correctly. The appeals courts of the USA ruled that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) did not have legal authority to control network management measures of internet service providers.
At the eComm conference that took place in Burlingame (US California), Eric Klinker reported in public that ISP companies will perform their traffic control in full accordance with their customers’ needs and their own policy thanks to successful appeal of Comcast provider against FCC restrictions.
In 2008 FCC decided that Comcast violated important agency’s principles by blocking BitTorrent connections. The proper sanctions for such selective traffic management were established. The FCC representatives commented this situation in a very diplomatic manner: “We assume that Comcast has all rights to establish specific rules for access to selective peer-to-peer applications from considerations of performance optimization and information security. Nevertheless such discriminatory policy that is followed by Comcast now, does not correspond to any mater of network management and breach the principle of free accessible Internet”.
The Comcast team disagreed with FCC conclusion and lodged an appeal that was successfully won. The Court of Appeals adjudged that FCC had gone beyond its commission breaking the principles of ISP’s traffic management policy.
Eric Klinker insists that only the public will be legal regulator of the world wide web, deciding whether the Internet and application providers behave correctly. He strongly thinks that there will be no centralized regulation for broadband, at least in the nearest future, except the public.
Klinker assumes the policy of certain ISPs normal when they trying to limit the connections of such P2P services like BitTorrent, like Comcast was doing before. The authorities don’t mind when Apple sets “feudal” order by numerous locking its products and services, as well as making their devices closed from most of Internet applications.
As for the ISPs, the customer’s requirement is faster connection during the most overloaded hours. In this aspect limiting access to some applications and services for illegal content sharing will not impact the Internet service quality.
