CCIA sent a letter today to members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee as the Subcommittee on Communications as it prepares to markup Internet governance legislation. CCIA is a longtime supporter of the multi-stakeholder model of global Internet governance, but we have concerns this legislation could be misused.
CCIA advocates for an inclusive multi-stakeholder internet governance of the internet. The internet faces threats from some regimes, which seek to curb online freedoms and increase governmental control. The best way to combat these threats is to support multi-stakeholder internet governance bodies and continued global dialogues.
