FCC Does Not Have Right to Regulate the Internet
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was dealt a major setback in its attempts to regulate the Internet for neutrality when a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the FCC does not have the right to regulate internet traffic. Currently, internet service providers are allowed to block or slow down content from specific web sites in favor of delivering content from other sites faster. Some internet service providers charge specific web sites to deliver their content faster.
