Mozilla Chief Operating Officer Denelle Dixon issued this statement following the oral arguments in Mozilla v. FCC, the case challenging the Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality protections:
“Today we fought for an open and free internet that puts consumers first.
Mozilla took on this challenge because we believe the FCC needs to follow the rules like everyone else. We argued before the Court that the FCC simply cannot renounce its responsibility to protect consumers on a whim. It’s not permitted by law, and it’s not permitted by sound reasoning.
The fight to save net neutrality is on the right side of history. Consumers deserve an open internet. And we look forward to the decision from the Court.”
