The Unraveling of Net Neutrality

Course Overview
Net Neutrality has been a guiding principle of the Internet. Net Neutrality rules required Internet Service Providers to allow access to all content and applications, no matter the source, without favoring or discriminating against a product or website. Without Net Neutrality rules in place individuals, governments, or corporations could promote certain uses, restrict access or even block services of applications and content. In today’s program attorney and technologist, Peter Vogel, explores both sides of the Net Neutrality issue, enabling IT and business professionals to have a more thorough understanding of the critical nature of this hotly contested topic.
