Having watched the video where he stole IP before it got taken down for having stolen IP, I'm pretty sure Ajit Pai's motivation isn't greed but sheer malice and spite. He simply hates the internet.

Man, why you gotta put me in a position where I have to defend Ajit Pai?

His terrible video was fair use. The DMCA takedown was abusive. "Stealing IP" is a nonsense phrase.

The legal justification for repealing net neutrality is shaky. The legal justification for the transformative use of a small excerpt of a copyrighted work in a noncommercial context is a lot firmer. There is no "unless it sucks" exemption in fair use analysis.

Pai is blaming it on a subordinate. Party of personal responsibility!

Ars: Verizon throttled fire department’s “unlimited” data during Calif. wildfire

Best to just read all the correspondence laid out in the article. The number of bait-and-switches, blatant deceptions and bluntly shaking down firefighters is quite a piece of work. This is what Verizon will do to our best. Anybody who thinks they're going to get the better end of it is delusional.
