On Nov. 20, 2011, the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality rules took effect. Several companies are already challenging the rules in consolidated appeals before the DC Circuit, which previously has shown some hostility to the FCC claiming authority to regulate this area. In addition to the legal challenges they face, the net neutrality rules may also be in political jeopardy depending on the results of the 2012 elections.
