Statement on the D.C. Circuit Court’s Open Internet Rules Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Michael Beckerman, President and CEO of The Internet Association, issued the following statement on the D.C. circuit decision on FCC’s open Internet rules:

“The Internet creates new jobs, new technologies, and new ways of communicating around the globe. Its “innovation without permission” ecosystem flows from a decentralized, open architecture that has few barriers to entry. Yet, the continued success of this amazing platform should not be taken for granted. The Internet Association supports enforceable rules that ensure an open Internet, free from government control or discriminatory, anticompetitive actions by gatekeepers. We look forward to studying the D.C. Circuit’s opinion and working with the FCC and policymakers on the Hill to protect Internet freedom, foster innovation and economic growth, and empower users.”
