Submission + - If citizens have no say on net neutrality, do shareholders? 1

Apu writes: The big telecoms might not care about me, a mere customer. And the FCC might not care about my opinion as a lone citizen. (Non-citizens will be affected too.) But, many of us are also shareholders. And shareholders can set policy for the companies they own. What's your thought on shareholder proposals to have companies enforce net neutrality through the contracts they sign?

  • One suggestion is to mobvest. Ie Mob invest. Setup a fund that only invests if the minimum shareholding is reached to ensure enforcement. Also limit share payment price in anticipation of the fund being gamed. What an interesting concept. Ethical control over profit. Couldnt the same be done with oil companies? Mmmmmmm.
