SIEPR Policy Forum on the Future of the Internet
New technologies, court decisions and governmental policies - what comes next?
Internet policy is back in the headlines, affecting one of the most important engines of economic growth and innovation. A recent court decision challenged the power of the FCC to make Internet policy. Countries such as China and Iran censor Internet content and battle to control Internet information. Breakthrough devices create new uses for the Internet, but concentrate considerable power in the hands of single companies.
Join Federal Internet policy makers, leading Internet companies, Stanford-based startups, and top academic researchers debating the devices and policies shaping the Net’s future.
