A federal appeals court recently ruled that internet service providers can give preference to some content and even block it if they choose. The “net neutrality” case has received a great deal of attention since the ruling.

Kendall Koning is pursuing a dual degree in law and Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media at Michigan State University and the MSU College of Law.

He says the idea behind net neutrality is that internet service providers should not make decisions about what content to block or what applications to favor.
