net neutrality is dead! so, like, y’know – let’s resurrect it, man

“On January 14, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order in the case of Verizon v. FCC.

Translation: This court just killed Net Neutrality.

Internet service providers are now able to block any website or app they want. That means they can decide what you can do and where you can go online.

This decision is a massive blow to the Internet as we know it. But the FCC has the ability to change this by reversing a series of bad decisions made during the Bush and Obama administrations and reasserting its authority to protect Internet users.”
