Actually, in America, everyone does own it.

The US government gave the major telecoms a hell of a lot of money, taxpayer funds, to expand their broadband infrastructures. And guess what? Those telecoms took the money.

That makes it ours.

You take taxpayer money, you take bailouts, you take government funding or subsidies, you can no longer claim to be a private entity.

I'm so sick to death of the "privatize the profits, subsidize the losses" stratagem most corporate entities in this country seem to gravitate to. It's a bunch of horseshit.

If your corporation accepts public funds at all, ever, at any time, you should no longer be considered a private company.
