In December 2017, the Federal Communications Commission adopted its landmark Restoring Internet Freedom Order that repealed the public utility-like regulations which were applied to broadband Internet service providers by the Obama Administration’s FCC. The Free State Foundation has just published a new book, Reader on Net Neutrality and Internet Freedom, edited by Free State Foundation President Randolph May and Senior Fellow Seth Cooper, that offers a defense of the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom Order. The book provides a wealth of information and key insights into the long-running debate surrounding “net neutrality” regulation. The Reader's twenty-four selected writings explore both legal and policy rationales that support the FCC’s December 2017 action. They explain why, from the perspective of the papers' authors, the FCC’s approach to regulation of Internet services adopted in the Restoring Internet Freedom Order is pro-consumer, pro-investment, pro-innovation and, therefore, why it should be preserved.
