Comcast is suing the Federal Communications Commission over the agency's move to sanction the cable giant over blocking peer-to-peer Internet traffic from BitTorrent. According to the Wall Street Journal, Comcast filed the lawsuit on Thursday. Comcast said it will comply with the FCC order, but is suing because it believes the agency's move was inappropriate.

Comcast's move isn't totally unexpected. The FCC made its first net neutrality sanction in August when it ruled 3-2 that Comcast violated rules by blocking BitTorrent traffic. Comcast has argued that it should be allowed to discriminate against traffic to better manage its network.

Overall, the suit is probably a good thing since it may establish more concrete net neutrality boundaries.
