Court rejects net neutrality, again

The DC Court of Appeals has unanimously rejected the Obama administration’s second effort to impose network neutrality. (It unanimously rejected their first effort in 2010.) This is a good thing.

In fact, while striking down the pernicious aspects of the FCC regulation, it leaves in place the regulation’s requirement that ISPs disclose what they are doing, so this seems like the best possible result. Perhaps Google (on whose behalf the administration was acting) will adopt a constructive, market-oriented approach (like this one) instead of rent-seeking now.
