WASHINGTON D.C. — On Friday, the FCC’s so-called “net neutrality” rules will go into effect — unless the D.C. Circuit decides to stay the Open Internet Order issued by the FCC in March. How likely is such a stay? If it’s granted, might that finally prompt Congress to craft a legislative compromise narrowly tailored to address “net neutrality” concerns while avoiding TItle II? If it’s not, what complaints will likely be filed under the new rules and how might the FCC address them? And how might the courts ultimately decide the case?
Join us Wednesday 6/10 at 2:30PM ET (11:30am PT) for a call with reporters and bloggers. TechFreedom President Berin Szoka will address all these questions, and explain why TechFreedom is challenging the FCC in court. The call will begin with a brief introduction followed by Q&A.
When: Wednesday 6/10 at 2:30PM ET (11:30am PT)

On Monday, TechFreedom, CARI.net, and leading Internet entrepreneurs filed a motion seeking leave to intervene in support of US Telecom and the other petitioners asking the court to declare unlawful the Federal Communications Commission’s February Open Internet Order, which reclassified broadband providers as Title II common carriers and imposed net neutrality rules considerably broader than what the FCC initially proposed.
