The document goes on to give a specific example of "over-the-top" online communications services: "Such services are increasingly competing with traditional telecommunication services," and yet, the Commission says, "these online communication services are not subject to the same rules." … [Read more...] about EU leak reveals plans to rein in Google, Facebook, and encourage local alternatives
