NO LAW CHANGES NEEDED. There are past US supreme court rulings regarding trespassing political speech on a private property being allowed if the private property is a de facto monopoly of the target listeners ears.

How would it be a problem to classify them as public utilities?

[–] viperguy [S] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

a public utility would only apply to wires probably that cross state lines, else federal laws would be illegal and pointless. also the only reason to declare them public is to tax white people and give free internet to all black people EVERYWHERE (actual stated goal of democrats, really, look it up). so no, they are NOT public utilities at this stage in history, until governments mandate email and mandate website only documents.

They aren't monopolies. Well, I guess they are for idiots who don't know how to use the web but still.

they are monopolies in regards to the eyeballs you want to reach. So yeah, in that SCOTUS definition they are defacto monopolies. Imagine walled garden facebook for example.

That's the problem -- selectively applied laws. There's one set of laws for the liberal "progressives" and another for nationalists and conservatives.
