Net Neutrality Lobbying

In July 2010 EFF filed a FOIA request with the Federal Communications Commission seeking records of meetings or discussions between FCC officials and representatives of telecommunications cable and Internet companies and organizations concerning potential net neutrality regulations.

Specifically EFF's request sought records concerning:

(1) potential legislation of broadband Internet regulation including but not limited to potential amendments to the Communications Act or Telecommunications Act; and

(2) potential FCC reclassification of broadband Internet connectivity services as "telecommunications services" subject to either partial or full regulation under Title II of the Communications Act; and

(3) the application of ex parte rules to any meeting between FCC officials and representatives of telecommunications cable and Internet companies and organizations.

In August 2010 FCC produced approximately 50 pages of documents responsive to EFF's request. We filed an appeal with the FCC shortly after arguing this production was insufficient and are still waiting for a response from the agency.
