There’s big news about the legal battle that has been waging over the issue of net neutrality. A panel of judges has now ruled in favor of the FCC’s net neutrality rules.

Free Press President and CEO Craig Aaron made the following statement about the decision:

“Today’s ruling is a great victory for the millions and millions of internet users who have fought for years for Net Neutrality. They have fought to ensure that the FCC has the power to protect everyone’s right to connect and communicate online. The court upheld the agency’s clear authority to prevent internet service providers from unfairly interfering with our communications. It confirmed that this authority stands on bedrock communications law and recognized the vital role that the open internet plays in our society.
