Towards an Economic Framework for Network Neutrality Regulation

This paper aims at assessing the economic merits of network neutrality regulation. To this aim, the paper applies insights from game theory, industrial organization, antitrust, evolutionary economics and management strategy to analyze network operators’ incentives to discriminate, the impact of potential discriminatory behavior on innovation and social welfare, and the costs of regulation. The results of the paper advance the debate over network neutrality in a number of ways: Economic theory predicts that a network operator that has a monopoly in the market for Internet services does not generally have an incentive to discriminate against independent applications. There are known exceptions to this rule, but there is considerable debate over whether these apply in the Internet context. The paper shows that some of these exceptions may indeed apply in the context of the Internet. More importantly, it identifies exceptions that have not been previously thought of. Thus, there are more cases in which a network provider may have an incentive to discriminate than is commonly assumed.

Strength in numbers? Public participation in the media ownership proceeding at the FCC

This study examines the role of ICTs in public participation in administrative agency rulemaking. It focuses on the 2003 media ownership rulemaking proceeding before the Federal Communications Commission. The proceeding generated substantial public interest and included extensive use of ICTs by the Commission, public interest groups, and many individuals. This research examines the extent to which the potential of ICTs to facilitate effective public participation in administrative rulemaking was actually realized in this proceeding.
