Should there be different regulators and approaches for broadband companies versus other Internet companies? The Congressional Review Act resolution was enacted earlier this year repealed the FCC's rule and barred similar rules in the future, but would it affect the FCC's ability to enforce Title II directly? What options will the CRA leave the FCC in the future? And what will happen if/when the FCC cedes jurisdiction over broadband privacy back to the FTC? Will the FTC have adequate authority? An appellate panel decision called the FTC's jurisdiction into question but the full Ninth Circuit has since vacated that decision and will rehear the case in September. Does Congress need to address the common carrier exception? What other changes should be made to the FTC or FCC's authority or approaches? What authority will the states and private parties have?
