Transfer of Title: The Future of Net Neutrality in the Wake of Internet Deregulation

The new FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, has announced his intention to repeal the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order that had brought the internet under Title II common carrier regulation and to reclassify ISPs as Title I information services. There is sure to be a contentious battle over these new rules and a fierce debate about the prospects for net neutrality if broadband is reclassified. Our discussion will try to rise above the rhetoric and provide tech lawyers with practical information on how publishers, platforms and content providers can position themselves and prepare in the wake of this major policy shift.

Panelists:
Tyler G. Newby, Co-Chair, Privacy & Cybersecurity, Partner, Litigation, Fenwick & West, LLP (Moderator)
Evan Engstrom, Executive Director, Engine
Marc Lawrence-Apfelbaum, Former EVP, General Counsel & Secretary, Time Warner Cable
Corynne McSherry, Legal Director, Electronic Frontier Foundation
Tejas N. Narechania, Assistant Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley, School of Law
