restrictions. The project's focus includes detection, analysis, and incident reporting of any anticompetitive, discriminatory, or other

or affiliated entities, such as the blocking or disruptive manipulation of applications, protocols, transmissions, or bandwidth; or other similar behaviors not specifically requested by their customers.
