The invention and introduction of the Internet created digital media and its impact on the new world is immeasurable.  Digital media largely affects the way we convey, impart, comprehend, strive, and allocate recreation. The digital media literacy enables us to access, discern, and engage or construct. Those who are not yet adapted could become included in the “digital divide” and factored out. There are upsides and downsides to the effect of digital media in today’s world....

You might not know it, but data breach is very costly not just in terms of money but also the safety of the people whose information have been compromised.  During the occurrence of a data breach, the one responsible for the said incident – either a phony, hacker or felonious syndicate – is most of the times went missing.

Is Trump’s administration planning to adopt Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation? With the never ending issues that Americans face regarding net neutrality issues, the  Trump administration is considering to foster data protections like Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation. The White House is looking into some kind of regulations similar to Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation.  Concerns regarding the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal still lingers on. Recently, reports emerged that the latter distributed information with various mobile device manufacturers. This generates...

In Europe, net neutrality is not just about blocking, throttling, paid prioritization, or zero rating. A committee just legalized two new European copyright rules. However, supporters of an open internet caution that it may extinguish the internet. The dubious new European copyright rules namely, Article 11 and Article 13 present comprehensive new transitions to how Internet operates. The latter regulation received denunciation that it might compel internet firms to “disallow memes.” It instructs that all networks...

When we talk of sharks, it only means one thing – death. Generally, we fear sharks as we get the notion of it as man-eaters. There are many different kinds of sharks out there. Some are still unnamed while some are still undiscovered. But the nightmare of being attacked by great white sharks were the most popular talks about sharks. For years, marine biologists study these ferocious predators but not all is known about it...

It is clear that the repeal of net neutrality has a broader negative impact on a major expanse of population than the advantages it can offer.  Black Lives Matter along with the Color of Change, National Hispanic Media Coalition, and others appeal to the House members to promote the revival of the net neutrality law. The Tri-Caucus leadership ( Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional, Asian Pacific Caucus and the Congressional, and Hispanic Caucus). The groups under the Voices for Internet Freedom...

Millennials will play a key role during the midterm election and will decide who the winners and the losers will be. Democrats are very much overwhelmed with their victory last week when the Senate committee passed the petition to use the CRA vote with 52 to 47. The unhappy parties include, of course, FCC Chair Ajit Pai and his ISPs lobbyists. There are so much to tackle about net neutrality issues, and the CRA vote...

Former FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn was appointed during the Obama administration. During that time, she enjoys the federal agency’s policies regarding net neutrality. But when Ajit Pai stepped in, everything has changed for the worst. Clyburn said, “If you don’t regulate appropriately, things go too far one way or the other, and we either have prices that are too high or an insufficient amount of resources or applications or services to meet the needs of Americans.” She...

Following the success of the Congressional Review Act in the Senate committee, the House Democrats started to gather signatures to pursue the vote for an open internet. Rep. Mike Doyle introduced the discharge petition that would enable the House to push a vote in case if half the representatives sign up. It will provide activists until the end of the January session to accumulate the required signatures. To date, they have gathered a total of...

Canada is considering to embrace the net neutrality principles. The open internet is not only a US issue but also to other parts of the world including Canada. The House of Commons council endorsed that Parliamentary officially protect net neutrality principles. The Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics (ETHI) issued a selection of five recommendations as an element of its The Protection of Net Neutrality in Canada report. The first endorsement recommends that the...
