House of Hypocrisy – Netflix and Net Neutrality

In Netflix’s hit series House of Cards, Frank Underwood has proven time and again to be a regular hypocrite, offering a fake public persona while acting entirely against his word. In recent days, it would seem that the show’s parent company has taken a page from Mr. Underwood’s playbook regarding net neutrality.

Congress turning back Net Neutrality for Small Businesses, Now for the Rest of It

It hasn’t taken very long for Congress to realize that the burdensome regulations of net neutrality are impeding American innovation. Now, they just need to start peeling them back.

The Biggest Beneficiary from Zero-Rating: The Developing World

There’s no denying it: we live in a world dominated by technology and the internet. We have witnessed the growth of massive tech companies and have seen how these new industry giants, once thought impossible to exist, drive entire economies to grow. For many people around the world, these innovations may be the difference between upward mobility and abysmal poverty. Despite the importance of expanding the reach of the internet, governments around the world have been pursuing policies that may stifle these amazing developments.

Zero-Rating, Zero Innovation from the FCC

The Internet: the next frontier of human innovation. A network of infinite connections and infinite possibilities. That is, unless the FCC has anything to say about it.

Net Neutrality Is Already Restricting Consumer Choice

When the FCC began to seriously consider imposing Net Neutrality standards on internet service providers, I had many concerns. I wrote an article at the time called “Rebutting the President on Net Neutrality,” in which I listed my disagreements with a policy that, on the surface, sounds reasonable to many. One of the more controversial points I raised was in response to the “No Blocking” principle, which forbids ISPs from picking and choosing which content they provide access to. I wrote:

Six Unbelievable Claims in Obama's State of the Union Speech

The annual State of the Union Speech is an opportunity for the president to update the country on the progress made in the last year, as well as lay out an agenda for the coming twelve months. With 2016 being the last opportunity for Barack Obama to address the nation as president, it’s understandable that he would be more focused on summing up his accomplishments in office than looking forward to the future. Given his actual record, though, it’s no surprise that he has resulted to a few exaggerations, or outright untruths, in trying to whitewash his two terms as Commander in Chief. Here are six claims to be made in tonight’s speech that are unbelievable for the simple reason that they.

FreedomWorks’ Digital Bill of Rights

As more and more of our activities move online and the internet plays an integral role in our day to day lives, it must be remembered that the rights we enjoy as American citizens do not stop at technology’s doorstep. It is important, therefore, to ensure that the protections established in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights serve Americans in the digital world just as effectively as they do in the real world. With this in mind, we therefore propose a Digital Bill of Rights:

U.S. Telecom Association v. FCC Could be Dangerous for Consumers

Today, the federal appeals court in Washington will begin to hear arguments regarding Obama’s net neutrality rule and whether or not the government should have the ability to micromanage the internet. As it would stand under the administration’s new rule, the government would have expanded capabilities to step in and add numerous burdensome regulations to the internet. This could pose many problems to businesses that range anywhere from substantial cost hikes to increased uncertainty in the economy; thus leading to curtailed innovation and less new products being introduced to the marketplace.

Obamanet Diminishes Our Freedom and Prosperity

Democracy and Power 101: Government is Power The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. —James Madison, Speech in the Virginia State Convention of 1829-1830

FCC Commissioner Says Broadband Taxes Are Coming

When the FCC announced that it was going to regulate internet service providers as telecommunications companies, the agency was careful to assuage fears about regulatory overreach. The final rule took pains to assure us that the only purpose of a more heavily regulated internet was to enforce the principle of Net Neutrality, a workaround of a federal court’s decision that the agency was exceeding its authority.
