Communists have the unique distinction of killing approximately 100,000,000 people in the last century.

Quoting "The black book of communism"? Really? That books is considered a joke by many scholars, lets say that it is at least controversial. Even if you argue 100mil victims of communist regimes, you can hardly say that it is a "unique distinction". Capitalism has killed much more, fasism has had its share too. It is a mute arguement. If you want to argue against communism/capitalism/fasism, etc, at least do it with some serious arguments like the economics, liberties, their feasibility, which system is more just, etc.

+ - EU Parliament adopts resolution to set standards for cloud interoperability

Clopy (857418) writes "The EU Parliament adopted a resolution backing up the European Commission’s cloud computing strategy. The resolution calls for adoption of standards that “should enable easy and complete data and service portability, and a high degree of interoperability between cloud services, in order to increase rather than limit competitiveness”. Another interesting aspect of the resolution is that "cloud providers should have a status of ‘data controllers’ which means that according to EU data protection laws they will share liability with the customer in relation to their data protection obligations". Among other things, the resolution also hints on the recent NSA snooping scandal, calls for anonymity protection, strong encryption, environmental and energy consumption issues. On Wednesday, the UN General Assembly, also adopted a resolution proposed by Germany and Brazil calling on the 193 U.N. member states "to respect and protect the right to privacy, including in the context of digital communication,""

Despite what most of the comments are focusing on, IMHO limited ISPs is not the issue here. There could be a dozen ISPs and still NN should be enforced.

TFA claims that if you don't like NN you have to leave the country. That's true. But guess what, that happens with every law in any country. It's a generic argument against any law. And there are many laws like NN. When a commodity is part of the structure of a country's economy there usually are laws that ensure equal access to it.

E.g. you can not force different car or truck owners to use different lanes and speeds just because you built and manage the road. There are state laws that deal with the speed limits, etc. If you don't like it, you have to move to another country.
