This is an amazing discussion between Senator Al Franken and Justice Sotomayor. Whatever your political persuasion, the First Amendment arguments put forth by everyone's favorite Senator — Al Franken — are an important reflection on the online mechanisms we use to share everything from our opinions to our legally owned content. Sotomayor initially defers on the role of the court — she basically throws the question of net neutrality back in the lap of Congress and the governmental agencies they have currently assigned to oversee the Internet as a communications medium — but she does so in pretty thoughtful way. And in a way that furthers our understanding of what we really mean when we talk about rights. Chances are, if you are interested in Usenet and/or in P2P systems in general, you have some pretty strong beliefs about our favorite penumbral right to the Constitution, privacy. If so, and you haven't seen this, take a look.
