FCC votes to restore its authority over broadband providers and restore net neutrality

Statement from Professor Barbara van Schewick, Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and the Director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society:
 
"Today’s FCC vote will restore federal oversight over the internet service providers we pay to get online and bring back federal net neutrality protections, while allowing states to provide an additional layer of protection. This is a big win for free speech, entrepreneurs, small business, and marginalized communities. Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel made it clear ISPs may not interfere with what we do online, a sentiment that I and nearly everyone in this country agrees with.
 
I look forward to seeing and analyzing the final order."
