What does it mean to “remove something from Google”?
Google simply indexes the world’s information. Therefore, Infringex can not just call Google and ask them to remove it because the item/information needs to be removed at the “publishing level” or at the origination point. The way that we and others in this industry accomplish removing items from Google search results is by having the objectionable web content removed at the origination point. After the item is deleted or removed by the publisher Google will stop indexing the information within about 30 days, and it will be DELETED and gone from Google and all other search engines forever!
Wow. Infringex has a better understanding of how the internet works than either the MPAA or RIAA -- the clown pair which seems to think that removing something from Google has removed it from the intarwebtubes.
Net Neutrality DOES violate AT&T's 1st amendment right
The 1st Amendment guarantees people* such as AT&T* corporation* the freedom of religious belief without interference from the government.
AT&T should have the freedom to worship their god (money) and practice their religion (greed, screwing consumers) without the government prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Net Neutrality would constitute government interference with both Greed and Screwing Consumers. Persons* such as AT&T* should not be deprived of the joy that their religion brings into their life, as evidenced by their evil laughter at the misery and expense of others.
The supreme court did the right thing (for rich people) in the Aereo case. There, the plaintiffs were rich people limiting access to content that was freely available over the airwaves. The supreme court clearly recognizes the overriding interest of greed here compared to trivial matters such as human trafficking (or worse).

Or those people in power know history full well, and simply do not care about the sheer magnitude of bad consequences, the number of people affected, or the number of generations of people affected by their decisions as long as their own personal lives right now wealth and power.
The internet was RIGHTLY thought of as a communications platform, not an entertainment platform. Because it is.
The fact that communications can be used for entertainment is simply one use for communications.
That general statement is true of any communications technology. Scratchings on cave walls. Printing press. Photographic film. Moving pictures. Audio recordings. Radio. Television. And the intarwebtubes.
But why would anyone want to watch any, let alone every new Hollywood release*.
YouTube has so much more to offer. I'm learning some Hebrew right now (on YouTube). I don't know that I have the discipline to stick with it. But so far I know the alphabet (or aleph-bet) and can pronounce and write them. (I decided not to learn a new programming language this year. This is more challenging.)
*re-release, remake, sequel, sequel of old remake, etc.
