Notice: Open Internet Advocates Urge the FCC On, Praise Increased Clarity
Numerous Internet and technology leadersissued a joint statement last night encouraging the FCC to expand its recent analysis of open Internet policy in a newly fruitful direction.In the statement, they commend the agency'srecent request for input on "Two Underdeveloped Issues in the Open Internet Proceeding" for its making possible greater recognition of the nature and benefits of the open Internet -- inparticular, as compared to "specialized services." In response to the FCC's request, their submission illustrateshow this distinction dispels misconceptions and helps bring about more constructive insight and understanding inthe "net neutrality" policy debate.Longtime network and computer architecture expert David Reedcomments in a special blog posting: "It is historicand critical [to] finally recognize the existence of 'the Open Internet' as a living entity that is distinct from all of theservices and the Bureaus, all of the underlying technologies, and all of the services into which the FCC historicallyhas partitioned little fiefdoms of control."Another signer, John Furrier ofSiliconANGLE, haspublicized the statement, stating "the future Internet needs to remain open in order to preserve entrepreneurship and innovation."The statement's signers are listed below. Please reply to me, Seth Johnson (seth.p.johnson@gmail.com), torequest contact information for those available for comment.Seth JohnsonOutreach Coordinator
