The Federal Communications Commission will be inundated with a barrage of lawsuits after its decision to approve the Restoring Internet Freedom Order. The repeal decision, which was approved December 14, 2017, allows internet service providers to restrict, bar, or charge more for particular content as they deem appropriate.
The Internet Association has announced that it will be joining legal action aimed at restoring net neutrality regulations. The association further said that it will “act as an intervener in a judicial action against this order,” meaning that while not a direct litigant, it will be given certain rights by a court to observe or act in the case. The trade group has a wide range of members including internet giants Facebook, Google, Amazon and Airbnb.
