The following statement may be attributed to Mike Wendy, Director of MediaFreedom.org:
Alexandria, VA, September 28, 2011 – Free Press today filed a lawsuit to challenge the FCC’s new Net Neutrality regulations. In their view, “there is no evidence in the record to justify this arbitrary distinction between wired and wireless Internet access.”
They did not go far enough.
The whole rule, based on an exceedingly small number of Net Neutrality “violations,” and built upon wild conjecture that the Internet will come crashing down unless the FCC protects it – contrary to the unregulated vibrancy of the marketplace – is arbitrary and capricious. Moreover, the group should have added that the regulation was crafted with self-made authority against the stated will of Congress, only compounding its infirmity before the law.
Consequently, the entire Net Neutrality regulation should be tossed out. It is illegal. It is unjustified. It is unwanted by those who value free markets.
