SNIPPET: This last approach, presented at the hearing as the third way, is the preferred avenue of Genachowski, who unveiled the plan in May.

Copps said he was worried about relying purely on the private sector for Internet-based innovation, saying that the problems of such an approach could be seen in the 2008 financial collapse and the recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
We need to reclaim our authority, Copps said.
