Submitted by plerner
plerner (2459036) writes "Argentina has a new Net Neutrality law; law no. 27.078. It was passed by congress this week and published yesterday. Original text in Spanish can be foud at http://www.boletinoficial.gov....

Article 1 reads (translated by google):"Object. Declared of public interest the development of Information Technologies and Communications, Telecommunication, and their associated resources, establishing and ensuring complete network neutrality.
Its purpose is to allow access to all the inhabitants of Argentina to the services of information and communication equitable social and geographical conditions, with the highest quality standards.
This rule is of public order and excludes any type of content regulation, whatever their means of transmission."

Theres a little bit more about it on articles 56 and 57 of the same law."

Well, not everyone in Argentina thinks that we are on the brink of economic collapse yet again. Some, like my self, think we are in a difficult situation which has no resemblance at all with what happened a decade or so ago. I don't really see any new economic collapse coming, not for the moment.

... why Google cannot pay to someone? The restrictions are for the Argentinian (yes, like me) that want to buy foreign currency. The company can send the money to the persons bank account, and the developer will get the money in local currency. Besides, in the link above, in spanish, Google does not say it's reasons. For the moment, with these information at hand, I really don't think these restrictions are the reason. Maybe when Google explain them selfs.

I agree. It is not just a matter of education, but of which kind. Lots of educated people around me, 'university' people, do not have the impulse to do a simple web search to see if they are actually right about something, before making decisions. And that is not just a matter of reforming education, but choosing the politician that will make it happen.
