Berners-Lee argues for Net neutrality

Tim Berners-Lee testified yesterday before a U.S. House panel on "The Future of the World Wide Web," presenting a persuasive case for maintaining a "nondiscriminatory Internet." (See full account at C/Net News.)

While refusing to back any specific bill on Net neutrality, he clearly opposed the concept of Digital Rights Management prioritization, and sparred with Representative Mary Bono of California over the issue.

What would Sonny think?

Does anyone suppose Congress will actually listen to Berners-Lee? Do they even know who he is?
