Abstract

As we live in an increasingly networked world, cyber-threats have become much more prevalent. The United States has promoted network neutrality and the virtues of an uncensored Internet abroad. However, new laws are being proposed which allow Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to arbitrarily block or discriminate against potentially dangerous websites. This has resulted in a challenge to the freedoms and privacy highly valued by Americans and could potentially harm America’s legitimacy as a leader of open Internet across the globe. Under such an environment, what should be done to create effective and responsible policies which can not only guarantee national security, but also preserve the freedoms of internet users?
