Verizon: We're In Talks With Netflix.

So, so, so wrong.

While I agree that it is wrong in that it goes against the way the internet is supposed to work I don't see a solid out for Netflix against bigger ISPs. Their customers can't go somewhere else because there isn't any real competition in the market in 99% of the US so their only options are pay the extortion so the ISPs in question will stop clogging their ports or sit on their thumbs and whine about how they're being mistreated. They've obviously chosen the former.
