The Future of Net Neutrality and Broadband Privacy

  • Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Dean's Conference Room (Rm 1008) 55 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Our Cardozo IPIL partner organization, the Cardozo Data Law Society (CDLS), has graciously extended the following invitation to IPLS members, friends, and family:

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 Felix Wu (Professor, Cardozo Law)James Sherer (Partner, Baker Hostetler), Peter Micek (General Counsel, Access Now), and Nicholas Hoenemeyer (Corporate Counsel, Choice Logistics). 1.5 CLE credits. A reception with drinks and food will follow.
