ALA Applauds Net Neutrality's Small Gain

ALA released a statement on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit’s Mozilla Corp. v. Federal Communications Commission and United States of America ruling that “upheld the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) authority to issue its 2018 Order eliminating network neutrality protections while also vacating parts of the order and remanding other parts. Importantly, the court vacated the portion of the Order in which the FCC attempted to preempt state or local efforts to protect an open internet.”

Wanda Brown, ALA’s president, says, “Today’s decision is another chapter in a long effort to ensure an open internet for all. … While today’s decision falls far short of our goal to restore 2015 protections, we are heartened by the court’s ruling that states may fill the gap left by the FCC’s abdication of its broadband authority. … ALA and the nearly 120,000 libraries across the country will not stop until we have restored net neutrality protections—whether in the states, Congress or in the courts.”
