You'd think companies would have learned from the Sony rootkit fiasco, but no.

What did companies learn from the Sony rootkit? That the criminal penalty for perpetrating literally tens of millions of felonies on behalf of a corporation is... absolutely nothing? Sure, that'll teach'em!

It's very specific, in many sections, that the neutrality rules apply only to "lawful content".

Right, net neutrality requires you not to discriminate against lawful content. If it is silent on the issue of unlawful content, that would mean you have the option of discriminating against it. It does not mean you're somehow "required" to discriminate against it. You're conflating net neutrality's actual requirement with its inverse.

So... how do you distinguish between what is "lawful" or not?

You assume everything is lawful and don't discriminate against anything. Easy-peasy. Half the point of being a "common carrier" is that you're not liable for the unlawful content you transmit (specifically in recognition of the fact that figuring out what would be lawful or not is a pain in the ass).

Now, either you knew this or you should have known it before posting; yet you misrepresented it anyway. Therefore: STFU, troll!
