EFF petitions to close loophole in FCC net neutrality rules regarding alleged copyright infringement enforcement

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in San Francisco has submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission on the proposed rules for network neutrality.

The EFF believes that the FCC should not make copyright infringement or any issue related to the content of speech (when challenged by third parties) as a form of “reasonable network management”. The EFF believes that lawful, non-infringing speech will get caught in the crosshairs; supposed infringement or pending DMCA takedowns should not be related to bandwidth access.

Here is a link to a PDF of EFF’s comments.

EFF says it has accumulated more than 7000 signatures on its petition demanding that the FCC close this loophole in proposed net neutrality regulations.
