The Google-Verizon Internet Pact

August 11, 2010

Industry giants Google and Verizon recently announced what they term a “joint policy proposal for an open Internet.”  Our view?  We appreciate that Google and Verizon, like the FCC and Congress, recognize that lawful and unlawful content should be treated differently.  We look forward to seeing the specifics of the proposal once it is fleshed out, and to actively participating in the legislative and regulatory process to ensure that any ultimate solution permits and encourages ISPs to take measures to deter unlawful activity over their networks, whether copyright infringement, child pornography or other illegal conduct.
