Stacey Snider
Protecting copyright is the hallmark of Chris' leadership at MPAA and he helped create a fully integrated, global online antipiracy operation. His leadership in promoting copyright in the EU Digital Single Market process and preventing harmful FCC regulation of set top boxes in the U.S. set the precedent for defending the rights of creators in the rapidly evolving digital ecosystem.feedback

Steve Buscemi

Here we are in 2017, which is already way past where Marty McFly went into the future, and your privacy is under attack by the Biffs of the world. Earlier this week, the House of Representatives voted to repeal internet privacy protection that had been approved by the FCC. That's bad, and we need to fight this.feedback

Bob Quinn - AT&T

The Congressional action had zero effect on the privacy protections afforded to consumers. If the government believes that location data is sensitive and requires more explicit consumer disclosures and permissions, then those protections should apply to all players that have access to location data, whether an ISP or edge player or search engine.feedback

Russell Brandom - The Verge

It's much more permissive when it comes to 'aggregate' customer information, which is where things get squishier and the FCC rules become more important. We could argue all day about whether a targeted ad is individually identifiable or not, but if you're paying Verizon to find out which sites Paul Ryan visited last month, that's pretty clearly individual information, and pretty clearly illegal to sell.feedback

Kevin McCarthy

The internet has become the amazing tool that it is because it is largely left untouched by regulation–and that shouldn't stop now. The resolution we passed today will protect both consumers and the future of internet innovation by overturning this flawed FCC rule.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

I want the American people to know that the FCC will work with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) to ensure that consumers' online privacy is protected though a consistent and comprehensive framework. In my view, the best way to achieve that result would be to return jurisdiction over broadband providers' privacy practices to the FTC, with its decades of experience and expertise in this area.feedback

Kate Tummarello - Electronic Frontier Foundation

We are one vote away from a world where your [Internet Service Providers or ISP] can track your every move online and sell that information to the highest bidder. Those rules were a huge victory for consumers. Of course, the ISPs that stand to make money off of violating your privacy have been lobbying Congress to repeal those rules. Unfortunately, their anti-consumer push has been working.feedback

Howard Waltzman

The question is: Why would you have different rules for ISPs in that regard than the rest of the Internet ecosystem?feedback

Gigi Sohn

ISPs like Comcast, AT&T, and Charter will be free to sell your personal information to the highest bidder without your permission – and no one will be able to protect you.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

Robo-calls are the No. 1 consumer complaint to the FCC from members of the American public.feedback

Maureen Mahoney - Consumers Union of US

Americans have run out of patience with robo-calls that ring at all hours of the day. This proposal is a positive step that will help provide relief from the scourge of unwanted calls.feedback

Bob Mould

Hüsker Dü means 'Do your remember?'. It's either Danish or Norwegian. If you go back to the Sixties and Seventies, there was a board game in America called Husker Du, and allegedly, they got busted by the FCC for putting subliminal messages in their TV ads. I knew people who worked in the business, and through the Nineties, I sort of gave them ideas. . . Fast forward to September of 1999, a position opened up at World Championship Wrestling in Atlanta. I had a friend who was working there and he came into more power, and he said, We want to bring you in as a consultant.feedback

Matt Wood

Death by a thousand cuts is a constantly overused cliche, but that's sort of what they're aiming for right now.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

If Congress moves forward with a major infrastructure package, broadband should be included. High-speed Internet access, or broadband, is giving rise to what I have called the democratization of entrepreneurship.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

We are confident in the decades-long, cross-party consensus on light-touch Internet regulation – one that helped America's digital economy thrive. Our approach will be not zero regulation, but light-touch regulation – rules backed by long-standing principles of competition law.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

The FCC decided to apply last-century, utility-style regulation to today's broadband networks. Our new approach injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market. And uncertainty is the enemy of growth.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

As I understand it, the parties have structured the deal such that it won't require paperwork with the FCC. The law as it is stated gives the FCC very limited authority and only if there is a transfer of control of a license between the two parties does the FCC get involved.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

My own view is that the internet should be run by technologists and engineers and business people, not by lawyers and bureaucrats here in the nation's capital. Light touch regulation means that we create broad regulatory frameworks that can protect consumers to ensure an overall competitive marketplace. But we shouldn't micromanage how these companies operate their businesses in the absence of evidence of a market failure.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

Light touch regulation, in this context, means that we let this dynamic industry, arguably the most dynamic the free market has ever known, develop. And if there are targeted cases where action might be necessary and the FCC has authority to act, then we take action.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

These low-band airwaves will improve wireless coverage across the country and will play a particularly important role in deploying mobile broadband services in rural areas.feedback

Randall Stephenson

The filing has been made with the Department of Justice. The review is ongoing right now. There will not be a filing with the FCC. We're going to assume no licenses from Time Warner. It will be a one-track review. The Department of Justice will review it and that's going at pace. We still think we'll be closed by end of year.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

A lot of involves divestment of power from the chairman's office.feedback

Edward J. Markey

There is no problem that needs to be fixed. Net neutrality rules ensure those with the best ideas, not simply the best-funded ideas, have the opportunity to share their content with the world.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

I believe, as I think most Americans do, in a free and open internet and the only question is what regulatory framework best secures that. My position is the government should not be in the position of prohibiting companies in a competitive marketplace from offering free data.feedback

Ron Wyden

We all know what the stakes are with the new chairman of the FCC. He is prepared to do the bidding of the big cable companies at the expense of consumers. This is another one where, early on, it's going to feel like we are really pushing the rock up the hill. But if it comes down to the citizens and the people at the grassroots against the special interests, then we can win that.feedback

Edward J. Markey

The big broadband barons and their Republican allies want to turn back the clock and make big cable and big cellphone companies the gatekeepers for internet access. They have a new FCC chairman in Ajit Pai who will do their bidding. I will oppose any legislative efforts to weaken the net neutrality order.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

Today, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is closing its investigation into wireless carriers' free-data offerings. These free-data plans have proven to be popular among consumers, particularly low-income Americans, and have enhanced competition in the wireless marketplace. Going forward, the Federal Communications Commission will not focus on denying Americans free data. Instead, we will concentrate on expanding broadband deployment and encouraging innovative service offerings.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

The FCC should enable innovation in the broadcasting business.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

We want to make sure that our regulations match the realities of the modern marketplace. We haven't made any determinations.feedback

Ellie Wheeler - Greycroft Partners

I think why people are freaking out is because what we all hope for – those of us that invest in technology – is for the same opportunity for the next Google and the next Netflix. So that in the next 20 years, all of those companies that are upstarts have the same access, and the same ability to reach the end users. The big concern, theoretically, is that taking this away, and taking these protections away, make it that much harder to for the next wave of innovation.feedback

Greg Maffei

Ajit has been very anti-regulation, pro-free markets, particularly about net neutrality, Title II, a lot of the issues that are likely to be addressed under a new FCC and a Republican president, Republican Congress. I think those are all very bullish for cable. The idea that you might be able to charge for quality of service, for variability, the amount of traffic, the speed of the traffic, how you want to make sure the traffic is delivered, might change the ability to price it. Does that fundamentally change the game for over-the-top providers? I doubt it.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

Upon my @FCC departure, I would like to sign off with 3 words of wisdom that guided me well: competition, competition, competition.feedback

Craig Aaron - Free Press

Pai has been an effective obstructionist who looks out for the corporate interests he used to represent in the private sector, . If the new president really wanted an FCC chairman who'd stand up against the runaway media consolidation that Trump himself decried in the AT&T ? Time Warner deal, Pai would have been his last choice ? though corporate lobbyists across the capital are probably thrilled.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

The commission is much stronger when it speaks with a unified voice. It gets a lot more congressional support, it's more likely to be held up in the courts and ultimately accepted by the American people.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

I look forward to working with the new Administration, my colleagues at the Commission, members of Congress, and the American public to bring the benefits of the digital age to all Americans.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

During the Trump administration, we will shift from playing defense at the FCC to going on offense. We need to fire up the weed whacker and remove those rules that are holding back investment, innovation, and job creation.feedback

Craig Aaron - Free Press

Pai "has been on the wrong side of just about every major issue that has come before the FCC during his tenure. He's never met a mega-merger he didn't like or a public safeguard he didn't try to undermine.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

These are serious things. People have made business decisions based on the expectation of an open internet and to take that away in order to favor half a dozen companies just seems to be a shocking decision. There are a half a dozen ISPs (internet service providers) and tens of thousands of companies and millions of consumers who would be affected.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

I can certainly understand why the ISPs for their own corporate interests would want to have no oversight at all and they certainly are advocating that position right now.feedback

Davidi Jonas

We are pleased that we were able to achieve a comprehensive settlement with the FCC, which allows us to move forward.feedback

Sonia Blizzard

As an ISP, we can see what is happening on the internet and take steps to help businesses protect themselves and those they do business with. There are many more elements involved in cyber-crime than a year ago. They are launching more sophisticated attacks on UK businesses and covering their tracks carefully.feedback

Michael O'Rielly - Federal Communications Commission

Rielly criticized the FCC's decision in October to impose stricter privacy rules on internet service providers than those imposed on websites like Facebook, Alphabet Inc's Google or Twitter Inc. Next year's commission should consider acting quickly to reverse any damaging policies put into place over the last eight years and in the last few weeks of this administration.feedback

Roger Entner - Recon Analytics

The focus will be more on reducing regulation than creating new ones.feedback

Spencer Kurn - New Street Research

Whoever gets picked (as FCC chairman) is likely going to implement a similar pro-business policy.feedback

Bob Quinn - AT&T

We welcome any video provider that wishes to sponsor its content in the same 'data free' way for AT&T Mobility customers and we'll do so on equal terms at our lowest wholesale rates.feedback

Edward J. Markey

These rules will ensure that as technology changes, our core values do not -- that consumers, not corporations, have control over their personal information. Consumers should be able to know at any given time what kind of information is being collected about them by their Internet service provider and how that information is being used. I applaud chairman Wheeler and the FCC for putting rules on the books that honor Americans' right to privacy.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

It is the consumer's information. How it is to be used should be the consumers' choice, not the choice of some corporate algorithm.feedback

Jonathan Adelstein

There's going to be a huge political food fight over this, there's no doubt about it, and I think Trump coming out against it just contributes to that.feedback

Jonathan Adelstein

In the end, I think it probably gets done, but I don't think it's going to be pretty. The bottom line is it is not that strong of an anti-trust case for DOJ because it is a vertical, not a horizontal merger.feedback

Christopher Sagers

The general view is if FCC takes jurisdiction over this deal, it's probably not getting through at all.feedback

Neil Macker - Morningstar

The probability of passage could depend on the outcome of the upcoming U.S. presidential election and any subsequent changes... at the FCC and the Department of Justice.feedback

John Janedis - Jefferies

We believe the deal will receive intense regulatory scrutiny by the FCC. Many pundits believe that the Comcast-NBCUniversal deal that was approved in March 2013 would not have been approved if it were to occur today, given a regulatory environment that appears more hostile. Looking ahead the likely new president may be less 'business friendly' going forward.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

I think that if they have to get FCC approval, and that's a very loose standard that can be very politicized, it can be very difficult to get this deal through. I think they're trying to avoid the FCC.feedback

David McAtee II - AT&T

We look forward to discussing the many benefits of this transaction with our regulators. In the modern history of the media and the Internet, the U.S. government has always approved vertical mergers like ours, because they benefit consumers, strengthen competition, and, in our case, encourage innovation and investment.feedback

David McAtee II - AT&T

We really just haven't prejudged that. With respect to the FCC licenses, we take a very simple approach here: we follow the law and so whatever the law requires that's always what we'll do.feedback

Amanda Wait - Hunton & Williams

They are going to make a hard look back at the concession and licensing provisions and see how they worked.feedback

Roger Entner - Recon Analytics

They are not buying Time Warner for a tiny TV station. It sticks out as a sore thumb and I would expect that to be gone as quickly as possible.feedback

Craig Moffett

It's not hard to imagine what you can do on paper. They would keep HBO exclusive for only DirecTV subscribers, or only make TNT or TBS available over AT&T Wireless. But as a practical matter, those kinds of strategies are expressly prohibited by the FCC and antitrust law.feedback

Gaurav Laroia - Free Press

Today's announcement signals that the FCC is on track to restore people's privacy rights against internet service providers' unpermitted use of personal information.feedback

Bill Nelson

If we stay on the present course, I fear the FCC's actions to promote set-top box competition could be tied up in court and hamstrung for years.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

If adopted, these consumer-first rules would pave the way for a competitive marketplace for new devices that enhance the TV-watching experience. Bottom line: consumers will no longer have to rent a set-top box just to watch the programming they already pay for.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

Rather than wasting its time on illegal efforts to intrude on the prerogatives of state governments, the FCC should focus on implementing a broadband deployment agenda to eliminate regulatory barriers that discourage those in the private sector from deploying and upgrading next-generation networks.feedback

Timothy Horan - Oppenheimer Holdings

We remain optimistic on long-term wireless and fiber fundamentals, but the stock is now $2 above our prior price target and is trading at relative highs on several metrics (relative dividend yield/EBITDA multiple). Near term, wireless is facing some pressures which have historically hurt the stock – spectrum auctions, FCC regulation/changes and the new iPhone – while negative news short term, fundamental impacts will be minimal.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

It is clear that more rules in this area are not what we need at this point.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

If the Commission approves my proposal next month, the United States will be the first country in the world to open up high-band spectrum for 5G networks and applications. And that's damn important because it means U.S. companies will be first out of the gate.feedback

Craig Moffett

I think everyone has to be shocked at the magnitude of the FCC victory.feedback

Berin Szoka

The only way to end this madness is a legislative solution that gives the FCC clear but narrow authority over the core of its rules – but stops the FCC's other power grabs.feedback

Jon Wilkins

As consumers and businesses turn to mobile broadband to conduct ever more of their daily activities, the safety of their communications and other personal information is directly related to the security of the devices they use. Consumers may be left unprotected, for long periods of time or even indefinitely, by any delays in patching vulnerabilities once they are discovered.feedback

Tom Wheeler - Federal Communications Commission

There is one indisputable fact, that it is the consumer's information and the consumer should have the right to say whether it is used for non-network purposes.feedback

Bob Quinn - AT&T

While consumers are embracing an apps-based approach that offers a variety of content on more than 450 devices, the FCC has chosen to go down a path that threatens the very competition that has led to a vibrant marketplace. As this proceeding continues, we hope these concerns are given the weight they deserve and the commission allows consumers and not Google to continue to drive the market.feedback

Edward J. Markey

The FCC is finally on its way to fulfilling the promise to American consumers of a competitive and robust video box market.feedback
