    First of all, you cannot block companies with a DNS service, just domain names.

    Is this a proposal for a new category?
    Here you go: https://community.opendns.com/domaintagging/categories at the bottom of the page.

    And who decides at the end what domains are "not in compliance with Net Neutrality"?  The domain tagging community?  And can a domain be non-compliant?

    Oh, please excuse my language. I mean block the domain names of those companies that don't comply with Net Neutrality.

     I guess it would be a new category. thanks.

    The community decides.

    The FCC ruling of "Net Neutrality" is not a finalized set of rules and regulations yet, and is already facing several court challenges that likely will tie it up for years. Aside from that, it is only a ruling of a US agency, that applies to a specific set of US companies, namely carriers or ISP's.

    What are the standards for determining if a company complies with Net Neutrality or not, given that the regulations are not yet complete or published, and that it only applies to a relatively small number of US companies. Would an Australian ISP's domain be blocked because it doesn't comply with US-defined "Net Neutrality"? What about a Japanese textbook publishing company. Even if they were in the US it is company that is not regulated by the FCC, nor would "Net Neutrality" regulations apply to them. Would they still end up being blocked for following government regulations that don't apply to them in the first place?

    Before the "community decides" we need to know what we'd actually be deciding on, and what the guidelines are for determining whether something is in compliance or not.
