Conference planned on Internet regulation, May 29
Posted May 13, 2002; 08:22 p.m.
A conference on "The Future of Internet Regulation: Open Access, Private Rights and Public Values" will be presented Wednesday, May 29, in the Frist Campus Center Multipurpose Room by the Program in Law and Public Affairs .
The conference will bring together leading lawyers, policymakers and academics to discuss legal responses to the Internet age. It will run from 9 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Over the last decade, the Internet has transformed our way of life, bringing with it some legal challenges. Judges, legislators and attorneys must wrestle with questions about how to secure personal rights of privacy and ownership while also capitalizing on the promise of new opportunities to improve the public's access to information.
The conference is organized into four panels: "The Architecture of the Internet," "Fair Use and the Internet," "Filtering and Content Regulation" and "Privacy, Surveillance and the Internet." The panels are designed to inspire discussion and audience involvement. Speakers will make brief remarks and then respond to questions and comments from the audience and their fellow panelists.
Space is limited; those interested should register online by Monday, May 20.
