Open Internet Access & Freedom of Speech: A First Amendment Catch-22
This Article examines the degree to which open Internet access raises free speech concerns for the cable ISPs, who own the networks and are subject to open access requirements, as well as the competing ISPs seeking access. As we will see, determining whether open access is consistent with our First Amendment traditions depends upon whether and to what degree ISPs are speakers entitled to First Amendment protection.
