Tim Wu joins Federal Trade Commission

Hmmm, now net neutrality cynics will appreciate that Tim is actually in favour of transparent, competitive free markets, as FTC makes him: a senior adviser for consumer protection and competition issues that affect the Internet and mobile phones. His job will be to assist the agency with “long-range competition and consumer protection policy initiatives,” the release said. It also said he would advise government employees on new legal cases associated with the Internet. The F.T.C. chairman, Jon Leibowitz, said in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Wu’s work with the agency would span the “nexus of consumer protection, competition, law and technology.”
