Attn. Stanford students, Palo Alto street peeps: FCC Comcast Torrent-thwart hearing to Stanford?

Summary: 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.

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.

    My name is Robb Topolski, and I am the Comcast customer identified in the Free Press (et. al.) petition to the FCC and my own personal statement is attached to the filing. Comcast's hacker-style network abuse is over a year old, and the FCC should act immediately to stop it.

    The Petition asks for an immediate stop to the discriminatory Comcast interference, a rule preventing such practices on other US Internet Service Providers, and a monetary fine.

    Clearly, the facts about this particular issue are all in. The FCC should act now to stop the interference immediately. Once the damage has been stopped, the FCC may hold additional hearings to address the issue of permanent Network Neutrality rules and the disposition of the remainder of this case.
