Subject: Net Neutrality Highlighted in Research Library Issues
Date: Fri, 20 Apr 2018 18:21:40 -0400
A new article by Clifford Lynch, "Practical Consequences of the Elimination of Net Neutrality for the Research & Education Community: A Speculation,” appears in the latest issue of Research Library Issues (RLI), which explores the implications of the US Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) reversal of its Open Internet Order, with a focus on research libraries and their institutions and users. The reversal, which is set to go into effect on April 23, 2018, will likely undermine net neutrality by allowing internet service providers to block, delay, or prioritize specific content, as well as track, record, and resell usage data. This issue of RLI discusses possible responses the research community and others could take to counteract or overturn the FCC’s recent action.
