Submission + - Comcast vs FCC, courts ruling on net Neutrality? (pcworld.com)

Globally Mobile writes: No decision has been made yet, but, if Friday's arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals in DC are any indication, it doesn't appear that the FCC will prevail in exerting its authority over Comcast. Losing this battle may be just what the FCC needs to move forward with its efforts to formalize net neutrality guidelines.
Comcast v. FCC The case before the court is an appeal from Comcast related to sanctions imposed on it by the FCC for discriminating against peer-to-peer networking file traffic in an effort to throttle bandwidth demand on its broadband network. Comcast's challenge claims the FCC has no such authority.
Where do you think this case is going? Who knows, the slashdot effect could have political ramifications, it certainly has other serious effects on other matters...
