Putting Net Neutrality into law is most likely to be a good step. What it means, in real terms, is enforcing by law what had previously been in place through what is effectively a "Gentleman's Agreement."
What we've seen over the past couple of years is that certain big players are anything but gentlemen, and the pressures of the quarterly balance sheets are prompting them to act for short term gain.
Anyone who tries to convince you that enforcing net neutrality will stifle innovation is blowing smoke. What they're afraid of is legislation that will limit their ability to soak short term profits at the expense of long term growth and innovation. They have their portion of the sandbox, and don't want other kids playing in it.
