The Future of Net Neutrality and Broadband Privacy

Date

March 15, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

In April, 2017, Congress voted to repeal the FCC Broadband Privacy rules, which would have required cable and telecom companies to give customers more choices about how their data can be collected, used, and shared. 

In December, 2017, the FCC voted to repeal the Net Neutrality rules, which prohibited cable and telecom companies from blocking or slowing down any websites or apps. The Net Neutrality rules also prohibited broadband providers from striking special deals that would give some websites or apps "priority" over others.

What do these recent repeals mean for consumers and the economy? How should policymakers respond?

Join Cardozo Data Law Society (CDLS) on Thursday, March 15th, 6 - 8 pm, in Room 1008 for a panel discussion on these issues. Panelists include James Sherer (Partner, Baker Hostetler), Peter Micek (General Counsel, Access Now), and Nicholas Hoenemeyer (Corporate Counsel, Choice Logistics). A reception with drinks and food will follow.
