After the U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted in December to repeal legislation in the Internet, the decision was met with strong public protests and legal challenges from state attorneys general and public interest groups. Democratic legislators tried to overturn this decision.
Opponents believe that the repeal of the bill will be reviewed by Internet service providerswebsiteContent opens the door, or charges additional fees for better services, which could hurt small companies. In order to confront the Federal Communications Commission’s decision, some states have taken steps to implement cyber-legislation at the local level.
Repealing legislation on the Internet was a big victory for Ajit Paii, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, who has long opposed the legislation, saying it impedes innovation.
On Monday, Pai published a column on the technology media CNet, defending the abolition of legislation in the Internet. He said the move was beneficial to consumers because it restored the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s supervisory power over internet service providers.
"In 2015, the Federal Communications Commission of the United States deprived the Federal Trade Commission, the top consumer protection agency, of its jurisdiction over Internet service providers. This is a loss to consumers, and we have already corrected this mistake," he said. .
The Net Neutrality Law prohibits broadband providers from blocking access to certain websites or reducing the speed with which consumers visit these websites, or charging additional fees to consumers who visit these websites. Its purpose is to ensure a free and open network environment, allowing consumers to access web content on an equal basis, and prevent broadband service providers from biasing their own content.
The Federal Communications Commission's repeal of the Internet legislation is a major victory for major Internet service providers such as AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon. These companies will have more power to determine what users can access and the price of these content.
But for Google, Facebook and other companies, abolishing the legislation in the Internet will be a major setback for them. Streaming media giant Netflix also said earlier that it opposed the Federal Communications Commission's abolition of online legislation.
As a result of efforts to abolish the legislation in the Internet, Pai became a "eyebrow in the eye" of many Internet users. Earlier this year, he was even threatened with death and had to cancel his plan to attend the Consumer Electronics Show at CES. (Compile / sail)
