Court weighs fate of net neutrality

Opponents of the net neutrality rules argue the FCC is stifling innovation by meddling in the marketplace.

The agency “needs to adopt a more flexible standard that allows for network discrimination in cases where there’s no harm to consumers,” said Ryan Radia, the associate director of technology studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Radia said a decision in favor of the rules would empower the FCC “to police business activity on the Internet across a variety of areas.”
