Link harvest: EU Gets It's "Whitacre" Moment

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-12-07/apple-google-asked-to-pay-up-as-europeean-operators-inundated-by-data.html

May I say how utterly delighted I will be when EU telecom providers start charging big American content providers squindoodles of money in new charges. Ain't economic karma a bitch.

American companies -- especially their lobbyists -- still think we live in the 1990s when we ran the world. Bad news, as we become less relevant economically, our ability to dictate terms to other countries diminishes.

Wanna bet this transforms the ITU from villain to hero as the only entity that can regularize the global market for interconnection?
