Mailland article argues for new congressional net neutrality regulation
The U.S. Congress should pass a sweeping net neutrality regulation, an anti-discrimination act for cyberspace, according to an article by associate professor Julien Mailland.
“For an Anti-discrimination Act for Cyberspace: Two-Sided Pricing, Walled Gardens, and the Depletion of the Marketplace of Ideas” appears in the Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal.
The article offers a multidisciplinary approach to draw new insights for internet law and policy. With reference to leading Supreme Court cases, Mailland argues that a net neutrality law would most likely pass First and Fifth Amendment constitutional muster, despite internet service providers’ assertions to the contrary.
