FCC Chairman Proposes New Net Neutrality Rules

Posted September 21, 2009 at 5:40pm by iClarified
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has proposed new rules prohibiting Internet providers from selectively blocking or slowing Internet traffic, according to AllThingsD.

Genachowski proposed that the FCC formalize its four principles of network openness:
- to access the lawful Internet content of their choice.
- to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement.
- to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network.
- to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.

Genachowski then proposed that two more dealing with net neutrality be added:
- prevent Internet access providers from discriminating against particular Internet content or applications, while allowing for reasonable network management.
- ensure that Internet access providers are transparent about the network management practices they implement.

All six of these principles would apply to any platform that accesses the Internet.
