Federal Court Strikes Down 'Net Neutrality'

Hosted by

Yesterday, a federal appeals court struck down the Federal Communications Commissions' rules on "net neutrality," the requirement that telecoms charge the same rate to all content providers. Is there a way back for the FCC without an all-out battle in Congress? Verizon, the telecom that sued the FCC, claims yesterday's decision won't change consumers' ability to access the Internet as they do now. So why did it go to court in the first place? Brendon Sasso reports on technology for the National Journal.
