A Sea Change at the FCC

The Trump administration recently announced that Ajit Pai will be stepping up to be the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. This is good news for the consumers and signals a welcome shift in the FCC's aggressive regulatory agenda.

Celebrating Copyright Week

Today marks the conclusion of copyright week, where it’s time to remind policymakers of the balance needed in copyright law. Too often, recent policy changes have been used to benefit targeted groups rather than enhance social welfare, as initially outlined in the U.S. Constitution. Any copyright reforms must include a broad range of interests that foster innovation and economic growth.

Reforming the Digital Millennial Copyright Act

Millennials are a disruptive generation. They are the first generation to abandon landline telephones in favor wireless smartphones, the first to cut the cord with pay-TV, and the first to turn to the Internet as their go-to source for music and video entertainment. These trends have many old school industries not just puzzled, but incensed that millennials do not respect the rights of those creating the content they consume.

Securing the Internet’s Future

The millennials are the first generation that grew up in a world defined by the Internet. What the car was to a teen in the Fifties — a chance to see the world, explore, and connect with friends — the Internet is to the post-industrial age millennial. Today’s Internet is so widespread that many take for granted the fact that they can stream Netflix, hail an Uber, or chat with friends and family across the globe. The Internet and all these benefits emerged through a burst of innovation and entrepreneurship that transformed our daily lives. Yet as the Internet matures, it is becoming the target of special interests and overzealous regulators seeking to control the bounty that the Internet provides.

A Digital Bill of Rights—It’s Time

In 1995, the Internet began, in earnest, as a commercial endeavor. Since that time, its growth has been explosive. Starting with only 16 million users that first year, the Internet now has over 3.4 billion users today—almost half the world’s population.

Copyright, Technology, and Reform

Today marks the end of Copyright Week, an opportunity to examine the current system of copyright and consider opportunities to reform a system that many view as dysfunctional and a hindrance to innovation. Copyright Week was born in the wake of the massive digital protest against SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, copyright reform legislation that would have done more harm than good. On the anniversary of the protests that saw many websites go dark to show their opposition to the legislation, Copyright Week provides a focus on the need to reform an outdated system that no longer serves its intended purpose.

The Paris Climate Talks and the INDC Gap

The Paris climate talks are now complete, with almost 200 nations agreeing to a framework for greenhouse gas reduction that attempts to keep any warming “well below 2 °C above preindustrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C.” The agreement is the crowning achievement of Obama’s environmental legacy and seeks to make the United States a leader in both reducing greenhouse gases at home and providing monetary assistance to developing countries to facilitate reductions across the globe. While the negotiators have gone home, the tough task of implementation raises serious concerns about the viability of the agreement. In fact, meeting the ambitious goals set out in Paris may prove to be too expensive and too problematic.

When Regulations Are More Trouble Than They're Worth

While the recent Republican debates have sparked lively discussions of tax and spending problems, many candidates have also highlighted the economic drag of regulation. This is important: Regulations have an annual cost of more than $1 trillion and have a significant impact on investment, innovation and economic growth. Rather than shackling the economy with new ones, Washington should conduct a comprehensive review of the regulatory burden with an eye towards eliminating redundant and obsolete mandates.

Curbing The IRS Is Easy--With A Flat Tax

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been making headlines fairly regularly over the past year, most of them unflattering. From its pursuit of conservative political groups, to missing emails about the agency’s actions and a massive data breach that exposed the information of more than 330,000 taxpayers, the IRS has been struggling to bolster its public image.

The Tax Code Has the IRS Understaffed, Not a Tight Budget

By April 15th, all American taxpayers should have filed their taxes with the Internal Revenue Service. This year, two issues gained prominence in the filing process.
