In this follow-up post, William Baker, CIPP/US, writes for Privacy Tracker about the implications and next steps we can expect to see as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) net neutrality order plays out. In part one, Baker outlined the history and important aspects of the order, and in this post, he offers insight on potential changes for consumers, ISPs, online services such as video-streaming sites, backbone/backhaul services and the Federal Trade Commission. “Whether the FCC has successfully threaded its way through the legal minefield outlined by the Brand X and Verizon cases, the Communications Act and the Administrative Procedures Act will ultimately be decided by the courts. The legal issues are a law professor’s dream,” Baker writes. (IAPP member login required.)
