FCC Commissioner Michael Copps on Net Neutrality

Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps appeared on PBS’s Bill Moyers Journal last week to discuss the importance of having a free and open Internet. At stake is whether the telecommunications industry or consumers gets to control what we see and hear on the Web. Net neutrality, or Internet freedom, is an issue that everyone who uses the Web in their daily lives – and those who want to – should be concerned about. Copps is one of the three majority Democrats on the FCC and has been an outspoken critic of media consolidation. An excerpt of his interview with Moyers is below.
