Groups refile lawsuits to block net neutrality reversal

Groups refile lawsuits to block net neutrality reversal

Here's the order, called 'Protecting Internet Freedom, ' which will be the focal point of those lawsuits.

.

Net neutrality will be dissolved effective April 23 as noted in the revocation order published to the Federal Register by the Federal Communications Commission today.

But it should be noted that at the moment, the net neutrality rules still apply in the USA, despite the FCC vote. A repeal, supporters of net neutrality say, would take away the level playing field of the internet and favor the bigger players online, harming smaller actors who want to get into the field, and would ultimately hurt consumers.

UAE- Soon, Instagram to alert you when your story is screenshot
Instagram has started testing a new feature that alerts users when someone tries to snap a screenshot of the stories they share. This, means that users will be safe from the star icon, the first time they attempt to take a shot of someone's InstaStory.

Today, the CPUC filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit a Petition for Review of the FCC's decision to repeal net neutrality rules on the grounds that the decision is arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion.

As reported by Engadget, in the coming months the attorney general of NY is slated to sue the FCC over the repeal of net neutrality with more states and advocacy groups to follow suit.

In addition to NY, attorneys general from California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Washington joined Thursday's petition.

Struggling Venezuela to start selling 'petro' cryptocurrency
Though the Petro's value is tied to crude oil, it doesn't actually translate to ownership of any concrete assets. Treasury Department has warned it may violate sanctions levied past year ", reports Reuters .

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who put forth the planned repeal and voted in its favor, dismissed the concerns a year ago. It also prohibited internet companies from charging a fee to access customers more quickly. In January, according to a Reuters report, US Senate Democrats said they had the backing of 50 members of the 100-person chamber for repeal - one vote short of a majority.

Democrats need 51 votes to win any proposal in the Republican-controlled Senate because Vice President Mike Pence can break any tie. Assuming it somehow did pass in the House, the next stop would be the desk of President Donald Trump - who would more than likely veto the resolution.

The approval of Pai's proposal marked a victory for internet service providers like AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc and hands them power over what content consumers can access. Companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter supported the rules.
