Opinion | Tim Wu: Why the Courts Will Have to Save Net Neutrality
The F.C.C. has overplayed its legal hand.
By Tim Wu

Listen up! A lot of you are terrified of what will happen when the FCC revokes Net Neutrality. I just want you to know that, even if the FCC votes against it, this is NOT the end. Rather, it is only the beginning of a long, long, LONG legal battle that will be fought in the US Court of Appeals.

Everyone from the ACLU to Silicon Valley to the New York Attorney General is gonna have a go at the three FCC members who want to strip away the internet. Even the other two members will be having a legal go at them, and, once again, THE BURDEN OF THE LEGAL SUIT WILL CRUSH ANTI-NET NEUTRALITY.

What we are doing now will probably not change the FCC’s decision, but it will offer ammunition to the legal battles up ahead. December 14th is not the end of Net Neutrality. It is merely the first battle in a long, long war.

A lot of you have anxiety. A lot of you are afraid. A lot of you are uninformed of the greater game at play here. Please, share this status. Educate yourself on the US Court of Appeals. We need to be ready to offer as much fuel for this war as possible. Do not simply become complacent after December 14th comes around.

The long game has only just begun.
