Quick round up today.
Second Major Canadian ISP to End Throttling
Rogers finally bent to pressure and has promised to end the practice of throttling internet traffic on its networks. The initial change is expected by June 2012 to half of the provider's customers, with the rest by December. The change comes after the CRTC noted that Rogers was deliberately slowing traffic, including online gaming, thus violating net neutrality. However, altruism isn't Rogers' motive; Bell announced that it would be ending throttling starting March 1.
Apple Amends Ownership Clause
Apple has amended its iBooks Author creation app to make it clear that content belongs to authors and only the format is the company's. The move is to confirm that Apple owns the .ibook format but not e-books created for that file type. Good news for authors wanting to publish via iBooks. Not so good for open sourcing.
