The maker of classic films like “Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now”, Francis Ford Coppola, has sent a letter to top most US telecommunications authority to call for a support for “net neutrality”, which prevent Internet services providers from blocking “Fast lanes” on particular sites.
In January President Donald Trump named Ajit Pai as a news FCC chairman. He said that he plans to abandon the 2015 standard, the Internet standard, aimed to ensure that broadband providers do not approve of their content in comparison with others.
The letter which was published On Sunday by the Oscar-winning filmmaker which said that “the Internet was designed so that it would not be dominated by Big companies.”
“Trust in the management of huge corporations with America’s artistic heritage is a critical error and can already be seen in the” monotony “of modern large-scale studio films,” Coppola wrote.
“The changes you make in the FCC will only make it impossible to maintain a delicate balance between the artist and the businessman. I assure you that none of the films that I or my contemporaries know and do not celebrate could exist today in such a climate, “He added.
Internet service providers, such as AT & T Inc, Verizon Communications Inc and Comcast Corp, are against the rules of pure neutrality, stating that they make it difficult to manage Internet traffic and discourage investments in improving access.
