Net Neutrality wins in court
From Free Press:
Today a panel of judges ruled in favor of the FCC's Net Neutrality rules — agreeing with the overwhelming majority of Internet users that this agency can and must protect everyone's rights to connect and communicate.
This outcome proves what we've known all along: that the FCC chose the right legal path to defend our Internet freedom.
Winning this Net Neutrality case is a major victory for Internet users like you. Now it's time to take the fight for a universal, affordable and open Internet to the next level.
We need the FCC to enforce its rules. We will continue shining a light on ISP abuses, uncover any new Net Neutrality violations, and bring formal complaints to the agency about broadband providers' unreasonable schemes.
And just because we've won the right to do that doesn't mean our opponents will quit. Whether the fight moves to Congress or the Supreme Court we'll be there to defend the open Internet ... and with your help we'll win.
So we hope you'll join us in building on this victory. A great way to get started? Chip in $5 to support the next phase in the fight for Internet freedom.
Thanks for all that you do—
Craig, Candace, Matt and the rest of the Free Press team
