What We Know About The Upcoming Net Neutrality

Steven Cash was quoted in an article, "What We Know About The Upcoming Net Neutrality Vote," published in Law360. The article discusses plans set forth by the Federal Communications Commission to vote on the proposed rollback of net neutrality protections in December. The proposed order includes, among other things, downgrading the internet's regulatory classification from a Title II common carrier to a Title I information service and, if approved, states will be prohibited from passing their own net neutrality rules. Cash told Law360 that the Restoring Internet Freedom proceeding has generally "captured people's imagination" because it deals with a commodity that everyone cares about. But while the issue of net neutrality has inspired prolific grassroots campaigning, the regulatory aspects are difficult to grasp accurately. "One problem is it's highly technical," he said. "It's not actually a particularly intuitive issue that we're facing."
