There have been a number of interesting items over the past week that I will be bringing up over the next few days. The first of these is this item in BusinessWeek (and this one in the Washington Post). This policy, which requires the carriers in the EU to open their broadband networks to resellers, stands in contrast to the current policy in the US, one that has been addressed both by the FCC and the US Supreme Court.
Which approach do you think is right? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the EU approach? Is there a middle ground that you would recommend?
Update: In this article, Tom Hazlett argues that these rules inhibit innovation and investment. Do you agree with him?
