[liberationtech] Deregulating the internet

To vastly oversimplify things for the purpose of making a point:

The principle of end-to-end is the guiding principle here.  Each bit
is opaque to the network it travels on: *nobody at all* should fiddle
with a bit in transit.

The regulation that discourages packet recording, tampering,
interference, and spoilage is to be encouraged.  Regulations that
encourage interference should be avoided.

Anything else is tantamount to censorship.  Maybe censorship for
limited times or for limited purpose, but still private censorship of
private speech.

My question for discussion is this. If we are opposed to 'governing the internet', then are we opposed to governing the corporations involved in controlling or meddling with access thereto? E.g., Google, Comcast, and their ilk? Which government do we oppose?
