Governing the Internet: Public Access, Private Regulation
- Starts: 9:00 am on Friday, February 2, 2018
- Ends: 5:00 pm on Friday, February 2, 2018
The question of who should regulate the Internet—governments, the private sector, or some combination of both—is one of the most important and controversial topics in the law today. For example, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently repealed its “net neutrality” rule and issued new draft regulations that would allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict their customers’ access to certain websites. This Symposium will focus on different topics and issues related to the public/private divide in Internet regulation.
