Driving on the Internet Express

In an interesting video embedded below, the presenter, A.C. Markkula, Jr., a co-founder of Apple, takes the position that access to the internet is a privilege and not a right. To curb some of the abuses and harmful effects Markkula suggests (perhaps tongue in cheek or perhaps seriously?) a drivers’ license approach to the internet.

Describe at least five ethical implications of Markkula’s approach.
