A federal appeals court has invalidated key provisions of the government's net neutrality rules. In a 3-0 decision, the court ruled that the FCC overstepped its regulatory authority in issuing a 2010 order that barred broadband carriers from blocking or slowing certain websites. Scott Cleland, Chairman of Net Competition, an e-forum that represents broadband interests, applauds the court for overruling the FCC. Susan Crawford, a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, disagrees.
Google expert Scott Cleland argues that the world's most powerful company has a hidden political agenda, and explains why he things its mission to organize the world's information is destructive and wrong. In Search & Destroy: Why You Can’t Trust Google Inc., he explains that Google has the largely unchecked power to influence and control virtually everything the Internet touches.
