Net neutrality proponents make the case for the freedom of the Internet. That freedom has allowed startups such as Google, Facebook, Myspace and Groupon to flourish, since there have been no Internet access barriers to entry. Overall, the proponents fear that without Net neutrality, the larger ISPs will control which companies succeed or fail as the Internet continues to evolve.

No doubt you’ve heard the term “Net neutrality.” Proponents and opponents have much to say on this topic. However, many Internet users don’t even know what it means, or how it will affect them.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
