Google worried by the new US telecom bill

Google says a new US telecommunications bill could "fundamentally alter the fabulously successful end-to-end Internet". Republicans on the US House Energy and Commerce Committee say they'll "press ahead with draft legislation that would ease the path for telephone companies to enter the video business," says Reuters. But the bill worries Vint Cerf, Google's new "neutrality guru". In a letter to the committee posted on the Google blog, "The Internet was designed with no gatekeepers over new content or services," he says.
