The DC Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a mixed ruling in the latest net neutrality tango, saying the FCC can roll back net neutrality regs but cannot block states from their own regulations. The court upheld one aspect of the Republican-controlled FCC’s efforts in 2017 to roll back Obama-era regulations -the classification of an internet service as an “information service” vs. a “telecommunications service,” but struck down the FCC’s action that would prevent state and local governments from adopting their own set of net neutrality regulations.

TECH TALK
 
Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg assured employees the company would prevail against breakup attempts by Democratic Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren in a leaked audio transcript from July posted by The Verge, but noted it would “still suck for us” if Warren were to be elected and FB would have to mount a legal challenge. Warren fired back yesterday on Twitter, noting “What would really ‘suck’ is if we don’t fix a corrupt system that lets giant companies like Facebook engage in illegal anticompetitive practices, stomp on consumer privacy rights, and repeatedly fumble their responsibility to protect our democracy.”
 
In other portions of the audio, Zuckerberg said FB can do a better job than Twitter of keeping a social platform free of hate speech. “Twitter can’t do as good of a job as we can,” he said. “I mean, they face, qualitatively, the same types of issues. But they can’t put in the investment. Our investment on safety is bigger than the whole revenue of their company.”
