"Congress should give Internet users what they most need" -ILF on today's Court decision on FCC Internet Rules
The International Leadership Foundation's Interim Director Zhu Xiao Di issued the following statement concerning today’s DC Circuit Court decision on FCC rules governing the Internet:
“The Internet is vital to our civic involvement, which is why Federal policy must encourage access to an open and transparent Internet. Today’s court decision is a reminder that judges and regulators are stuck using outdated laws to make decisions affecting how we use the Internet. The result is an expensive drag on improving the Internet’s openness and this is why Congress should modernize Federal Internet law this year.
“Given today’s crisis of internet trust, Congress should give users what they most need: a uniform set of rules that protects online openness that applies equally to every Internet company, including service providers and technology companies.”
