The European Union should simplify and reduce regulation of broadband providers, remove barriers to consolidation, and embrace a market-led, technology-neutral approach to broadband.
This week's decision from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which rejected the Open Internet Order's no-blocking and non-discrimination rules, is very important. But, despite its importance, it is really not all that surprising.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia delivered its decision yesterday in a case brought by Verizon against the Federal Communications Commission.

The Federal Communications Commission will decide today (Dec. 12) whether to reconsider its rules prohibiting cell phone use on airplanes.

AEI's Jeffrey Eisenach says companies like Pandora and Spotify are making a lot of money — they're just using it to target new audiences rather than putting it in the bank and calling it a profit.
In this conference, veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, mental health and disability experts, and an economist will discuss current hurdles to rehabilitation, and suggest alternatives that could more effectively expedite the reintegration of veterans into their families, communities, and workplaces.
