Federal Court of Appeals Strikes Down Net Neutrality Rules
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down two net neutrality rules that the FCC put in place in its Open Internet Rules of 2010. The court struck down the FCC’s anti-blocking and anti-discrimination rules which prohibit broadband providers from blocking legal content, applications and services, and prohibit non-mobile broadband providers from discriminating among legal Internet traffic. The court’s order was based in part on the manner of regulations the FCC has authority to impose on broadband carriers. You can read the full text of the court’s decision here.
