Protect the Net From Corporate Greed

No thanks to U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Westwood), the Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act won approval of the House Judiciary Committee, passing by a vote of 20-13. Chabot voted no.

The bill would use antitrust law to protect Network Neutrality. This bill would amend the Clayton Act to require that network providers: 1) interconnect with the facilities of other network providers on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis; 2) operate their network in a reasonable and nondiscriminatory manner such that non-affiliated providers of content, services and applications have an equal opportunity to reach consumers; and 3) refrain from interfering with users’ ability to choose the lawful content, services and applications they want to use.
