Symposium to cover ‘Competition and Innovation in the Broadband Age’

Broadband offers extraordinary potential for innovation and, with that, poses key legal and public policy challenges. “Competition and Innovation in the Broadband Age,” a symposium to be held March 22 at The Ohio State University, seeks to explore this potential as well as its impact on economic competition in three contexts: telecom regulation, cloud computing, and search technology.

Join keynote speaker Christopher S. Yoo, founding director of the University of Pennsylvania Law School Center for Technology, Innovation & Competition, and other industry leaders for a multidisciplinary discussion on the broadband industry. Topics to be covered include: competition and innovation in the U.S. broadband industry; competition, innovation, and cloud computing; competition and innovation in search; and foreign competition policy and U.S. high-tech industries.

The symposium is presented by I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society, in collaboration with The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies, and Microsoft.

Stay tuned to the journal’s website for more details as they are made available.
