Well to do anything online, we'd be taking up bandwith and HD server space. How do we determine what is necessary? Who picks up the tab? Hence, who makes the rules?

isn't that a violation of the first amendment?

Under Reno v. ACLU 521 US 844 (1997), the Supreme Court granted the internet the same protection as Newspapers. Under this ruling, the court made a few judgements about the internet:

The Internet is different from broadcasting because the principle of Spectrum Scarcity (the principle that allows the government to legally regulate broadcast media) is not relevant because the internet is a different public medium. There are no physical limitations with the internet, as there are with limited spectrum space, as in broadcasting. Therefore, the government regulation is not justified.


It will be interesting to see how this plays out...it looks to this acorn sized legal mind as if this law is unconstitutional.
