CDT Confident Next FCC Chair Recognizes Importance of Open Internet Policy

President-elect Obama is expected to name Julius Genachowski to head the FCC. Given Genachowski’s business background and intimate knowledge of Web 2.0 social networking technologies, CDT is confident that he understands the importance of an open Internet and the need to encourage and support innovation. In addition, CDT expects Genachowski’s venture capital background will bring a new sensitivity to the risk that FCC policies and regulations could harm small and upstart innovators that are central to the culture and development of the Internet.
