How did three people mispell "precedent"?  This is Comcast slapping its own wrist to make the bees go away.  16 million dollars is chuff change to them.

No, it doesn't.  This was settled out of court, not with a court judgment, so there is no prescient created here.

Also, this is just patheticly low. According to their income statement (link) Comcast's net income for the past year is a little under 3.1 billion dollars

Maybe not a legal precident but it does say "we're mad as heck and we're not gonna take it any more" which SHOULD make other ISPs think twice, if even only for a nano second.
