Another case to keep an eye on involves open access to the internet. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit will hear oral arguments in Verizon v. FCC, a case about net neutrality. “The U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality regulations, also known as open Internet rules, face a hearing on Monday. Verizon Communications has challenged the FCC’s authority to pass the rules.” A brief history of net neutrality and similar legal issues from PC World is here. Predictions on how this case will be decided based on a U.S. Supreme Court precedent from this spring (Arlington v. FCC) are here in a NY Times article.
