Net neutrality goes on trial

A federal court is set to hear arguments on Monday in a case that could shape the future of the Internet.

Lawyers for the Federal Communications Commission will defend the agency's controversial net neutrality regulations against a legal challenge from Verizon before a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Supporters of the rules say they preserve a free and open Internet, but opponents argue they are an unnecessary burden on businesses and amount to government control of the Internet.

The outcome of the case will also have wide-ranging implications for the FCC's ability to impose any regulations on broadband Internet service.
