Aftermath From The Net Neutrality Vote: A Mass Movement To Protect The Open Internet? Published on May 20, 2017 at 06:34AM
The Writers Guild of America calls the FCC’s 2-to-1 vote to initiate a repeal of net neutrality rules a “war on the open internet,” according to The Guardian. But the newspaper now predicts that online activists will continue their massive campaign “as the month’s long process of reviewing the rules begins.” The Hill points out that Mozilla is already hiring a high-profile tech lobbyist to press for both cybersecurity and an open internet, and in a blog post earlier this week the Mozilla Foundation’s executive director sees a larger movement emerging from the engagement of millions of internet users.
Today’s support for net neutrality isn’t the start of the Internet health movement. People have been standing up for an open web since its inception — by advocating for browser choice, for open source practices, for mass surveillance reform.
But net neutrality is an opportunity to propel this movement into the mainstream… If we make Internet health a mainstream issue, we can cement the web as a public resource. If we don’t, mass surveillance, exclusion and insecurity can creep into every aspect of society.
Hospitals held hostage by rogue hackers can become the status quo.
Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that it’s not till the end of the FCC’s review process that “a final FCC vote will decide the future of internet regulation,” adding that however they vote, “court challenges are inevitable.”
