But they did not create Google, Skype, Facebook, or even TCP/IP. And here is what is at stake: the architecture of the Internet. If we let the providers of Internet access control what runs on their pipes, we will cripple the elegantly layered architecture of the Internet where access is decoupled from applications. And it is that elegantly layered architecture that begat Google, Skype, Facebook, and so very much more.  The answer to that question is no.
