Randolph J. May, Jr., Maryland Life Fellow, Co-Authors Two New Legal Works

September 4, 2018, Fellows in the news

Randolph J. May, Jr., Maryland Life Fellow and President of the Free State Foundation, has recently co-authored with Seth L. Cooper, the two recent books: A Reader on New Neutrality and Restoring Internet Freedom and #CommActUpdate: A Communications Law Fit for the Digital Age. 

A Reader on New Neutrality and Restoring Internet Freedom provides a wealth of information and key insights into the long-running debate surrounding “net neutrality” regulation. The selected writings in this Reader explore both legal and policy rationales that support the FCC’s December 2017 action. They explain why the FCC’s pro-consumer, pro-investment, pro-innovation approach to regulation of broadband Internet services that was adopted in the Restoring Internet Freedom Order should be preserved.

#CommActUpdate: A Communications Law Fit for the Digital Age offers a roadmap for a comprehensive update of federal communications law. The book is comprised of six scholarly responses submitted by the Free State Foundation to an earlier congressional process considering an overhaul of the Communications Act, along with a Preface and lengthy up-to-date Introduction providing a wealth of background information and context. The book prescribes specific reforms for areas such as broadband policy and Internet oversight, competition policy, network interconnection, spectrum management, universal service, and video services regulation.
