WASHINGTON (AP) -- So, you might be wondering what all this talk about Net Neutrality -- and the new ruling by the Federal Communications Commission on the issue -- means for you. The short answer: things won't be much different from they are right now. As it stands, Internet Service Providers like cable companies don't discriminate among different kinds of Web traffic -- meaning you have just as much of a right to stream a movie or send a cute picture of your kid or pet to your online pals as big companies have to stream movies or other content.
