One technology industry source with knowledge of the motion also
called it a "politically-motivated campaign to do something that
is a regulatory matter".

Like in the famous 'Breakfast' poster, there is surely a part in this
statement I do not 'get'.
If regulation is not based on politics - then on what?
But it at least illustrates that in neo-liberal/ corporate capitalist
thinking, there is no such thing as politics. The Dutch saying about 'the
wish being the mother of the thought' comes into mind. The somewhat cruder
Anglo  'Keep Dreaming!' too ...

Cheerio, p+D!
