Net Neutrality is theft

In an article for the Associated Press, reporter Daniel Lovering describes soon-to-be-proposed rules on “Net Neutrality” as “prohibit(ing) Internet service providers from interfering with the free flow of information and certain applications over their networks.”

FCC Misguided on Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced today that it will revive the debate over net neutrality and issue new regulations concerning network management. The new regulations will be designed to prevent content discrimination and maintain network management transparency with the ultimate goal to “safeguard the free and open internet,” according to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.  The announcement emphasized the importance of the internet in innovation and investment as well as the role it plays in entrepreneurship.

Assessing Broadband in America

In the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama earlier this year, a provision was made for a “national broadband deployment strategy” to increase the penetration of high speed internet throughout the country.  To explore their options, the FCC has begun a review of the current broadband policies.  Many have used comparisons between the United States and other nations as a reference for new broadband polices.  Not surprisingly, these advocates suggest that to remain in international competition, a greater degree of government intervention is required; however, upon further analysis, America has one of the strongest bases of independent internet stability worldwide.  The FCC would be wise to avoid aggressive new regulatory policies toward broadband deployment.

Net Neutrality Regulation Hurts Families

The Christian Coalition of America is an important voice for pro-family values. However, in recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, the group threw its support behind a new “Washington-knows-best” regulatory scheme that would not only stifle innovation and growth, but also limit the ability of America’s parents to protect their children from objectionable and dangerous Internet content.
