Re: from Dave Farber's list: Ireland to regulate peering

If the grocery store had a monopoly on selling potatoes in Ireland, and after an investigation into the costs of supplying potatoes to the retail market it was shown that they were profiteering, you might find they'd say "yes". Although such mechanisms are normally reserved for utilities, and the Internet just came of age in as much as governments now regard it as an essential utility. Another recent example being:If I think a grocery store in Ireland is charging too much for potatoes, can I ask the Irish government to order the grocery store to change its price on potatoes?
