Net Neutrality opponents are working everywhere from Congress to the courts to dismantle or undermine the FCC's Title I classification.
In the February wake ruling, 10 lawsuits designed to gut Net Neutrality been filed and legislators have introduced numerous deceptive bills that would demolish these protections. Of course, most recently, the attack in Congress has come from the appropriations committees. Then, both the House and Senate committees have passed bills containing riders that would sabotage the Net Neutrality rules. Net Neutrality is crucial for small entrepreneurship owners, startups and entrepreneurs, who rely on the open Internet to launch their businesses, create a market, advertise their products and services, and distribute products to customers.

The open Internet gives marginalized voices opportunities to be heard. ISPs could block unpopular speech and prevent dissident voices from speaking freely online, without et Neutrality. On top of this, people of color would lose a vital platform, without Net Neutrality. Eventually, no company going to be able to interfere with this open marketplace. Anyway, iSPs are by definition the gatekeepers to the Internet, and without Net Neutrality, they would seize every possible opportunity to profit from that gatekeeper control.
The mainstream media have failed to allow people of color to speak for themselves.
Thanks to economic inequality and runaway media consolidation, people of color own just a handful of broadcast stations. So, diverse lack ownership is a primary reason why the media have gotten away with portraying communities of color stereotypically. The court didn't comment on the rules merits. Now regarding the aforementioned fact... Instead, it ruled against the FCC's ability to enforce Net Neutrality under the shaky legal foundation it established for those rules. Rather to determine whether the Commission has demonstrated that the regulations fall within its scope statutory grant of authority, the court specifically stated that its task as a reviewing court ain't to assess wisdom of the Open the wisdom Internet Order regulations.
