ALA and CDT Pen Missive on Net Neutrality
The American Library Association (ALA) and the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) issued a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that advocates for strong, enforceable Net Neutrality rules for the preservation of freedom of speech, educational achievements, and economic growth online. The organizations asked the FCC to act quickly to restore Net Neutrality protections.
“We are concerned that the FCC’s original proposal would allow Internet providers to prioritize or degrade Internet traffic—specifically content, services, or applications offered by libraries and educational institutions,” says Courtney Young, ALA’s president. “Libraries, educational institutions, innovators and consumers increasingly operate as both consumers and content creators, and the Commission’s rules must protect both sides of the Internet access equation.”
