Internet network neutrality is one of the most contested issues in communications law today. Those in opposition maintain that the rights of network owners are at stake. Supporters argue that the Internet’s open architecture is at risk as are the rights of Internet users to freely publish and access information. Despite this connection to free speech, up to this point there has been little discussion about the First Amendment implications of network neutrality. Using the idea of a right of access to the media, Bagwell uncovers legal precedent that would give First Amendment support to network neutrality rules.
