Yes, Mozilla files a suit against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to protect Net Neutrality!
Probably, the fight to protect net neutrality seems to be on a loser’s side but that may not be the case with Mozilla, the net non-profit giant dedicated to protecting the web. Yes, on January 16, 2018, Mozilla filed a petition in Federal Court of Washington, DC against the Federal Communications Commission for its decision and fight against net neutrality, a 2015 open internet order.
According to a report by Denelle Dixon published on January 16, on the organization’s blog, the current Court suit against the FCC is worth the fight to protect net neutrality.
This is especially important because cutting off net neutrality may be the first step that will project into the death of the internet harming internet users as well as innovators, said Mozilla. This, accordingly, is believed to be a crisis that in itself goes against the Federal Law.
“The internet is a global, public resource. It relies on the core principle of net neutrality (that all internet traffic be treated equally) to exist. If that principle is removed — with only some content and services available or with roadblocks inserted by ISPs to throttle or control certain services — the value and impact of that resource can be impaired or destroyed.“, the post highlighted.
This is evidently in line with Mozilla’s own manifesto, inspired by at least ten principles that guides the organization’s “mission to promote openness, innovation and opportunity on the web”.
In line with this, Mozilla is dedicated to fighting a course that will ensure the internet is protected from all manners of threats directed to killing its purpose including, but not limited to, net neutrality.
