Google defends Net neutrality regulations

CNET "ASPEN, Colo.--A Google executive said on Tuesday that entrepreneurs creating new start-ups could be thwarted unless Congress enacts extensive laws imposing Net neutrality regulations on broadband providers.
'I'm not worried so much about Google in this regard,' David Drummond, Google's general counsel, said at a 90-minute debate organized here by the Progress and Freedom Foundation. 'I'm worried about the small innovators at the edge of the networks.'
In the mid-1990s, when company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin were creating what would become the world's most popular search engine, Drummond said they 'didn't think about who we had to talk to on the network to make sure users could use the Google search engine.' "
