On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a ​​new net neutrality regulations. When the new rules are adopted, internet service will be regulated like a public utility, a move that will prevent companies from manipulating internet traffic. It will be a major victory both for President Obama and for a swarm of internet companies that vocally supported net neutrality​—everything from Netflix to Twitter​, to Mozilla, Tumblr, and Etsy. However, when these new rules are adopted, the fight will be far from over. The FCC's ruling is expected to be challenged in courts, and some Republicans have warned that years of costly litigation could lie ahead. Marvin Ammori, a First Amendment lawyer and internet policy expert, explains what this decision means, and what happens next. This is a vital issue to those of us in the outdoor amusement business who have limited access to wifi and the internet. Worth a listen.

Wise's reference to Auschwitz, a Nazi concentration camp, came…
