NAB Show Super Session Examines Net Neutrality, Impact on Internet
Washington, DC - Mar 27, 2014 - Public policy surrounding the issue of net neutrality has sparked fierce debate about the future of the Internet. A session at the 2014 NAB Show will address this. Titled "World Without Rules: Is This the End of the Open Internet?," the session will be held April 8 at 4 p.m. Featuring top opinion leaders and experts on the issue of net neutrality, the panel will address how proposed regulations governing access to the Internet will affect content providers, ISPs and content creators.
Opinion leaders on both sides of the issue will debate the merits and drawbacks of the FCC's proposed rules, which would prohibit ISPs from blocking websites, force them to disclose how they manage traffic and prevent them from favoring some kinds of traffic over others. If the FCC's pending rules do not move forward, ISPs may move into the same legal category as phone companies, which are treated more like utilities and face stricter regulations.
Amy Schatz, senior editor, Tech Policy for Re/code will moderate the panel, which includes Jessica Gonzalez, executive vice president and general counsel at the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC); Robert McDowell, visiting fellow at The Hudson Institute and a former commissioner at the Federal Communications Commission; Pantelis Michalopoulos, partner at Steptoe & Johnson; and Berin Szoka, president of TechFreedom.
