Digital Broadband Migration: After the Internet Protocol Revolution

Sunday, February 9 - Monday, February 10, 2014
@ University of Colorado Law School, Room 101

The Internet Protocol has already revolutionized communications technology and disrupted legal business models. It has, because of the Internet's international reach, raised international governance challenges. Notably, a number of Internet pioneers, along with the US government, have balked at proposals to centralize aspects of key Internet governance at the United Nations. At this year's Digital Broadband Migration conference, we will examine the range of Internet governance issues on the horizon, including strategies for addressing competition policy concerns, social policy issues in the wake of the technological transition, and the appropriate institutional strategies for developing sound Internet policy.
