Abstract

The Internet is often seen as a victory for free speech—a vast, open, democratic forum for free-wheeling expression and debate. Given this reputation, it is surprising—and, according to author Dawn Nunziato, problematic—to learn that a smattering of powerful entities control most Internet traffic and that these private players are not subject to the limitations of the First Amendment. In "Virtual Freedom: Net Neutrality and Free Speech in the Internet Age," Nunziato, professor of law at George Washington University Law School, provides a well-written, insightful work that discusses private censorship of online communication and that proffers wise solutions designed to protect free speech in the Internet age.
