us: Groups Urge Courts To Limit FCC’s Authority to Regulate Speech
As communications technologies converge, courts must rein in the Federal Communications Commission’s continued efforts to expand its authority to regulate speech over broadcast media. That is the key message of two friend-of-the-court briefs CDT filed this week in conjunction with Adam Thierer of the Progress and Freedom Foundation (PFF) in the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 2nd and 3rd Circuits. As an organization focused on the Internet and emerging digital technology, CDT has not typically involved itself in the broadcast indecency debate. But the FCC’s increased indecency enforcement is likely in this age of convergence to threaten the underlying freedom of other digital communications.
