Washington, DC, June 11, 2018 – Fred Campbell, director of Tech Knowledge, issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s order restoring internet freedom, which took effect today:

“Don’t believe the hype. Today isn’t the end of net neutrality protections. It’s a change in venue.

Under its previous net neutrality regulations, the FCC regulated http://shopvintagewines.com/wine-spirits-type/page/3/contactus@shopvintagewines.com some internet companies using its statutory authority to protect consumers from ‘unjust and unreasonable’ practices. Under the ruling that took effect today, the Federal Trade Commission now regulates can you buy motilium over the counter all internet companies using it statutory authority to protect consumers from ‘unfair or deceptive acts or practices.’

This simple shift in authority from one federal agency to another is why some advocates claim the internet sky is falling. Hyperbole is the only oxygen left in the net neutrality debate, and it’s causing people to hyperventilate.”

Statement On Senate Approval Of Net Neutrality CRA

Washington, DC, May 16, 2018 – Fred Campbell, director of Tech Knowledge, issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s vote to disapprove the rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission’s most recent order on net neutrality:

“Today’s vote was driven by political double-speak designed to win mid-term election votes. The net neutrality rules the CRA is intended to restore were designed to protect the special interests of big tech monopolies, not protect consumers. How? By letting big tech block websites, charge tolls, and create fast lanes while prohibiting big tech’s competitors from doing the same. 

A consumer-focused approach to internet regulation wouldn’t work this way. It would first ask what rights internet consumers should have and then adopt policies that protect those rights irrespective of corporate identity or technology. That’s the only way to achieve strong consumer protections on the internet that will stand the test of time.”
