Internet Is Not Broadcast

It seems that someone is always thinking you can regulate the Internet. Will this idea never die? The CRTC is conducting hearing into "new media" and the presentations by various interest groups that want to ensure that their cash cows continue to produce, are quite laughable. According them the Internet is no different than broadcasting, therefor CRTC should regulate it as such.

Sorry guys but broadcast media and the Internet are polar opposites. Broadcasting is pushing the content to the end user. On the Internet, the end user pulls the content. If these organisations are really that ignorant of how the technology works, they and the people they represent, are doomed to fail.
