Statement by Lawrence Blake Group International Founder on Net Neutrality

[May 15, 2014, New York, NY] "I am profoundly disappointed in the Federal Communications Commission’s vote today in favor of Chairman Tom Wheeler’s proposal to allow Internet providers to charge companies a fee for preferred access to their customers. The Internet has expanded because of taxpayer dollars, and it belongs to every single one of us.  Favoritism and pay-to-play deals challenge net neutrality, and do not stand aligned with the principals of our free-market economy. We are now in the period for public comment, and I encourage anyone who is concerned about the future of our Internet to kindly reach out to the Federal Communications Commission and voice their opinions.” L.
