Earlier this month, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated portions of the FCC's net neutrality mandate, holding that the Commission did not have statutory authority to regulate broadband providers by prohibiting them from blocking or prioritizing Internet traffic. Verizon v. Federal Communications Commission, No. 11-1355 (D.C. Cir. Jan. 14, 2014). The decision is the latest in the net neutrality debate which has been waging for several years and is a blow to major net neutrality advocates such as eBay and Amazon.
