    There's no doubt that large telecommunication companies would prefer the internet to be ran more strictly, to deter free speech, and gear it more towards a consumer-centric, regimented broadcasting medium.

    If the large corporate oligarch are successful in their goals to end the innovation, free speech, and opportunity the internet allows for, then what does this mean for Internet Marketing and the net in general? What are your guys thoughts on this?

    That's exactly why it's such a concern. As the internet is ran by fewer service providers it becomes more susceptible to monopolization.
