Internet Pioneers and Leaders Tell the FCC: You Don’t Understand How the Internet Works
Internet creators and leading figures ask the FCC to cancel its vote repealing Net Neutrality protections

Representative Doyle:

We are the pioneers and technologists who created and now operate the Internet, and some of the innovators and business people who, like many others, depend on it for our livelihood. We are writing to respectfully urge you to call on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to cancel the December 14 vote on the FCC’s proposed Restoring Internet Freedom Order (WC Docket No. 17-108 ).

This proposed Order would repeal key network neutrality protections that prevent Internet access providers from blocking content, websites and applications, slowing or speeding up services or classes of service, and charging online services for access or fast lanes to Internet access providers’ customers. The proposed Order would also repeal oversight over other unreasonable discrimination and unreasonable practices, and over interconnection with last-mile Internet access providers. The proposed Order removes long-standing FCC oversight over Internet access providers without an adequate replacement to protect consumers, free markets and online innovation.

It is important to understand that the FCC’s proposed Order is based on a flawed and factually inaccurate understanding of Internet technology. These flaws and inaccuracies were documented in detail in a 43-page-long joint comment signed by over 200 of the most prominent Internet pioneers and engineers and submitted to the FCC on July 17, 2017.

Despite this comment, the FCC did not correct its misunderstandings, but instead premised the proposed Order on the very technical flaws the comment explained. The technically-incorrect proposed Order dismantles 15 years of targeted oversight from both Republican and Democratic FCC chairs, who understood the threats that Internet access providers could pose to open markets on the Internet.

The experts’ comment was not the only one the FCC ignored. Over 23 million comments have been submitted by a public that is clearly passionate about protecting the Internet. The FCC could not possibly have considered these adequately.

Indeed, breaking with established practice, the FCC has not held a single open public meeting to hear from citizens and experts about the proposed Order.

Furthermore, the FCC’s online comment system has been plagued by major problems that the FCC has not had time to investigate. These include bot-generated comments that impersonated Americans, including dead people, and an unexplained outage of the FCC’s on-line comment system that occurred at the very moment TV host John Oliver was encouraging Americans to submit comments to the system.

Compounding our concern, the FCC has failed to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests about these incidents and failed to provide information to a New York State Attorney General’s investigation of them.

We therefore call on you to urge FCC Chairman Pai to cancel the FCC’s vote. The FCC’s rushed and technically incorrect proposed Order to abolish net neutrality protections without any replacement is an imminent threat to the Internet we worked so hard to create. It should be stopped.

Parlamento e Internet

La XVII legislatura della Repubblica Italiana è alla fine ed è tempo di valutare se i rappresentanti politici italiani abbiano prodotto qualcosa di utile per lo sviluppo e la corretta regolamentazione di Internet in Italia.
L’iniziativa più evidente è stata l’istituzione, presso la Camera dei Deputati, della Commissione per i diritti e i doveri relativi ad Internet, composta da Deputati della Repubblica e da un certo numero di esperti. La commissione ha concluso i suoi lavori con la redazione di una Dichiarazione dei Diritti in Internet, datata 28 luglio 2015.

Lo status legale, ovvero costituzionale, della stessa Commissione -da non confondere con una commissione parlamentare in senso proprio- sembra dubbio e fondamentalmente ambiguo. Nel suo funzionamento e nei suoi esiti la Commissione ha agito secondo modalità semmai più adatte a quelle di una libera associazione di cittadini che esprimono le proprie convinzioni circa un ambito problematico di interesse pubblico (politico) generale. La costituzione della Commissione nell’ambito istituzionale della Camera dei Deputati confonde ruoli e piani di intervento tra iniziative a carattere civico e quelle proprie del massimo organo legislativo della Repubblica. In particolare la confusione è evidente nelle status della Dichiarazione finale la quale -pur avendone l’apparenza- non ha nessuna rilevanza legale, non è da considerare un testo normativo di alcun genere, e non rientra nelle fonti normative dell’ordinamento della Repubblica italiana.

Complessivamente, si è trattato di un esercizio retorico, qualificando con retorico un agire che volutamente manifesta una apparenza che nasconde e confonde la realtà delle circostanze, in questo caso l’apparenza di una commissione in ambito e quindi apparentemente con ruolo legislativo, ma in realtà assente di qualsiasi intento, ruolo o effetto legislativo.

E comunque interessante la raccolta dei parere degli auditi, che in qualche modo indica il livello delle preoccupazioni  e delle competenze degli addetti ai lavori su Internet in Italia.
