Activists gather along President Obama's motorcade route in Los Angeles on July 23, 2014, to push for net neutrality.

When a federal court of appeals upheld net neutrality, a lot of people applauded. Equal access to the internet for everyone seems right.

GUEST Harsha Madhyastha is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Division at the University of Michigan.
