Logan Cooper BLAW 3201-10 Chapter 43 Case Brief Vonage Holdings Corp. v. Minnesota Public Utilities Commission United States District Court, District of Minnesota, 2004, 290 F.Supp.2d 993. Facts : This case is an example of technology growing faster than the regulations that overshadow them. The issue at hand is the new technology provided by Vonage, which allows voice communications to be transmitted over the internet. The internet is still in a period of significant growth, and with that growth leaves many ideas issues to be explored. In an effort to allow further unhindered growth, Congress has taken deliberate actions to leave the internet free of growth stunting oversight. It has distinguished between telecommunications services, which are regulated heavily, and information services like the internet, which have largely been left in the light and free from the overbearing shadows of legislation like clouds blocking the suns rays of light from reaching the earths surface.
