Good point. 500M of ocean is a trivial distance for today's oil platforms. If processing methane as it exists below that depth/temp gradient could be made profitable -- no earthquakes in OK or polluted fresh water.
There is nothing that says that the government will force ISPs to block illegal content.
That language allows customers on either end of the ISPs pipe to bring action against a blocking ISP, and the ISP can no longer say, "We can block or not as we want".

Maybe some Dems did hold their nose and vote in the Republican primary. So what? After gerrymandering, this is the only way to exercise a meaningful franchise.
Is buffer bloat -- the over-buffering many ISPs do in the hopes of giving better last-mile performance, but which actually breaks TCP's internal throttling mechanisms -- part of what is at fault, here?
[Nazi architect and politician] Albert Speer said he regretted most that he grew up with a technical education only, in architecture and engineering. He learned little of the liberal arts and humanities, and nothing of philosophy.
"It was this lopsided education that made it so easy for many of us to fall under the spell of Nazism," he said. "We were technical barbarians, who did a fine job, but never inquired about the purpose, or the ultimate results.
"Weapon Shops of Isher" (A.E.Van Vogt) or the Harry Harrison "Deathworld" novels.
I'm sure she thinks that America has the best health care delivery system in the world, too.
We recently saw the play "Tribes" which deals with much of this. Synopsis:
I have worked on SDS940 computers (dates me, eh?) used in DE's demo -- they were mighty for their time, and ran time-sharing networks, etc.
By the late '70's, a simulator of the SDS940 running on a Dec-10 was faster than the actual 940 hardware.
