Recent debates about Internet regulation in the U.S. have focused on the FCC's 2010 Open Internet order and its May 2014 NPRM, but longer-term questions about the regulation of broadband networks loom. What can and should the Internet be in 2020? What is the appropriate regulatory approach to take in the next few years, and how should it be implemented? What will all this mean for innovators, policymakers, and users? Join Duke Law School's Center for Innovation Policy on Friday, October 17, at the Keck Center in Washington, D.C., for this symposium, bringing together a small group of leading authorities for a discussion of these questions. Vint Cerf and Tim Berners-Lee will begin the program, which will also include Paul de Sa, Sharon Gillett, Bill Lehr, Ruth Milkman, Jon Nuechterlein, Jon Sallet, Henning Schulzrinne, Howard Shelanski, Jim Speta, and Daniel Weitzner.
