How Regulation Could Break the Internet: In Conversation with Andrew Sullivan

‹ Back

Andrew Sullivan, our President and CEO, will be speaking about the Internet regulation at a Chatham House event.

From abstract: Internet regulation is increasing around the world creating positive obligations on Internet providers and exerting negative unintended consequences on the Internet infrastructure. In some ways, most of this regulatory activity is justifiable. Governments are concerned about the increased risk that the use of the Internet brings to societies. As a response, many governments have been enacting regulations as their main approach to dealing with these concerns. The main challenge is that most of the current regulations are either ill-defined or unworkable.

This event will discuss current practices in Internet-related regulation and the related challenges. Panelists will discuss how governments can enforce regulations that achieve their intended purpose while at the same time protecting the Internet’s core infrastructure and its properties, including its openness, interoperability and global reach.
