This year's conference will include:

  • Preparing for the Next Round in Net Neutrality - Our panel will discuss the FCC's decision applying common-carrier regulation to the Internet, discuss how all digital stakeholders will be impacted by the new regulations, and analyze the appeals and potential for Congressional action.  This session will begin with a technical tutorial on the architecture of the internet to lay a foundation for the discussion of net neutrality.
  • Managing the International Legal Needs of Digital Media - Counsel will discuss their experiences coping with the demands of a cross-border legal environment as a practical matter: evaluating international needs, finding and working with counsel, dealing with foreign governments and crisis management.
  • Tech Journalists on Content Management in an Over-the-Top World - Tech journalists will discuss how audiences will manage the task of finding programming in a media landscape that increasingly includes "over-the-top" content on an ever-growing number of platforms, where there is no fixed model for attracting consumer attention to particular content.
  • Probing the Outer Limits of Section 230 - This panel will explore why some companies are hoping the CDA will protect them even as they engage in activities in the physical world, while at the same time, courts are pushing back in certain areas, even where the claim involves publisher activities.
  • Has The Transformative Use Doctrine Transformed Copyright Law For Better or Worse? - A panel of experts from all sides of the fair use landscape will discuss fair use as it applies to search, digitization and accessibility, and debate the proper boundaries of the transformative use doctrine.
  • Recent Developments in Digital Privacy & Data Security - Our panel  will explore new government regulation in the area of privacy and security; the role of government investigations and enforcement actions and private class action litigation in remedying unlawful conduct and shaping future behavior; and steps that companies should be taking now to reduce and address potential cybersecurity and liability risks.
