The policy framework guiding communications policy has never been more fragmented and uncertain. The Federal Communications Commission is expected to undo its "Open Internet" reclassification of Internet services under Title II. Last spring President Trump signed legislation from Capitol Hill which effectively repealed the FCC's recent Internet privacy rules. At the same time many states are looking to pass their own Internet rules -- particularly on privacy. The Federal Trade Commission has been making moves to exert more jurisdiction over open Internet principles and communications privacy but it's authority is in question pending review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. All the while, both Houses of Congress are weighing their options and searching for political will to rewrite rules of the road for Internet services. We'll discuss these issues and more at State of the Net.
