Valleywag is hearing that a "do-over" of yesterday's net neutrality-overlayed FCC hearing about Comcast's thwarting of Torrent packets may be headed to the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto.

I wonder how happy Comcash will be to face the citizenry's champion of net neutrality and reasonable copyright. I am talking about Larry Lessig, praise be unto him. Being a Stanford prof. he presumably could walk to such a hearing.

BTW at yesterday's hearing Comcast admitted they hired several dozen people off the street to pack the seats.

I wonder if Comcast will try that stunt in Palo Alto. I often glimpse plenty of unemployed grad students walking and cycling along and hear University Avenue.
