by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 13, 2003

This speech, The Beginning of the End of the Internet?” Discrimination, Closed Networks, and The Future of Cyberspace, was delivered October 9 by FCC Commissioner Michael J. Copps, at an event sponsored by the New America Foundation, Washington, DC.

  • The Internet …”may be dying because entrenched interests are positioning themselves to control the Internet’s choke-points and they are lobbying the FCC to aid and abet them. The founders’ vision of the Internet is being exchanged for a constricted and distorted view of technology development, entrepreneurship and consumer preferences.”
