+ - Rogers ISP Web Messages Anger Google

Submitted by Jumphard
Jumphard (1079023) writes "Toronto based ISP, Rogers, potentially overstepped the boundaries [TheStar.com] of what an ISP can and cannot do. They recently tested out new "technology" that inserts Rogers messages into HTML pages served from other websites to inform users of their monthly bandwidth usage. This has changed the look and feel of Google Inc.'s webpage for Rogers subscribers, and Google hasn't taken the offense lightly. Google and other critics say it is the start of a slippery slope of ISPs botching net-neutrality and controlling the web as they see fit. Is this a simple case of a harmless new feature being taken the wrong way, or is Rogers on it's way to becoming the new People's Republic of China?"

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
