Please read what the FCC opinion on net neutrality looked like in 2010 when I wrote this blog. Actress Justine Bateman, Justin Bateman’s sister inspired me to write this blog when I was acting CEO of the Women’s Alliance for Media in D.C. Justine has been a fierce advocate on keeping the Internet open for the masses. I feel very powerless right now in this discussion in 2017. If you have ideas on what the FCC should do, please make your voice heard. It does appear that the FCC may have a clue…when it comes to keeping the Internet open for the masses in the U.S. – It seems that the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), Hollywood, big Internet companies (Google, Verizon), the Wireless industry and public rights advocates are divided on how to preserve and, […]
