    This book might be of interest to those looking to study this area. It is a book written by a professor I had a few years back. Enjoy.

  2. > Similarly, Net Neutrality, which disallow the blocking of web sites, affect speech by effectively banning private censorship.

    How does this interact with Section 230(c)(2) of the CDA?

    Nice idea to gather the various folks working on these issues. My article analogizes Internet nondiscrimination rules to the equal access rules upheld in Rumsfeld v. FAIR:

    While it seemed inappropriate in the post, I have written two things on this topic myself:

    The Master Switch (2010)

    The Second First Amendment Tradition, Brookings (2011)

    The second one may be sort of hard to find, need to put it up somewhere. The first is a book.
