Guest: Zachary Stiegler, Asst. Professor of Media Communications

Book: Regulating the Web: Network Neutrality and the Fate of the Open Internet

In response, the Federal Communications Commission sought to enshrine “net neutrality” in regulatory policy as a means of preserving the Internet’s open, nondiscriminatory characteristics.
