Submitted by Scott Cleland on Wed, 2014-05-07 10:18
For those interested, please see a nine-minute highlight video of NetCompetition’s April 4th expert panel on making consumers, not technology, the organizing principle of any update of the obsolescing Communications Act.
The experts, Gene Kimmelman of Public Knowledge, Jeff Eisenach, of the American Enterprise Institute, Mark Cooper of the Consumer Federation of America, and Hal Singer of the Progressive Policy Institute, all discussed the merits of making consumers, not technology, the starting point and organizing principle of any update of the Communications Act.
The highlight video of the April 4th event: “Thinking and Starting Anew: Modernizing Communications Law for American consumers” can be found here.
In addition, the highlights of NetCompetition's first event on a Communications Act update, "A Modern Vision for the FCC," can be found here.
