"Some critics say the 18-page standards proposal is an attempt
to distract the government's antitrust inquiry, spurred on in part
by the proposed merger of AOL and Time Warner Inc."
"Michelle Russo of the FCC said her agency is not formally
investigating AOL, but simply conducting a standard inquiry into
business practices. AOL has not filed its standards proposals with
the FCC yet, Russo said."
"Ross Bagully, CEO of Tribal Voice, wasn't satisfied with
the AOL proposal. "What they are talking about would take a very
long time to accomplish," he said, especially since there is no
time frame for implementation. "There is no indication that AOL
wants to open up the market," Bagully said."
