CFIF Statement on FCC Vote to Move Forward With New Broadband Privacy Rules Print E-mail
Thursday, March 31 2016

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today voted to move forward with consideration of proposed new "privacy" regulations targeted at Internet Service Providers (ISPs).  What follows is a statement by Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) President Jeffrey Mazzella:

"This latest effort by the FCC is nothing more than the Commission once again picking winners and losers in the marketplace. These regulations on ISPs do nothing to prevent the online data collection practices used profusely by others throughout the Internet economy, while constricting the development of new business practices and distorting the robust digital marketplace.

"The prescriptive regulations voted on today also circumvent the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) expertise in this area. The FTC's proven framework on privacy has worked to protect consumers for decades while encouraging the growth of the Internet we have today.

"Rather than finding ways to cement the presence of FCC bureaucracy in our daily lives, the Commission should reconsider its regulations on so-called 'privacy' and instead focus on pro-growth solutions for a robust mobile marketplace."
