Experts to Discuss Information Regulation at Breakout Session
Contact: Amy Smorodin
August 10, 2010 – The question of whether and how to regulate the collection and use of online information is receiving renewed attention from the Congress, Federal Trade Commission, and the Department of Commerce. What are the privacy problems we face on the Internet? Are they amenable to government or market solutions? What are the strengths and weaknesses of pending legislative proposals? What are the tradeoffs involved in regulating information flows more stringently? These questions will be examined at the TPI Aspen Forum breakout session “Privacy Online: Where Do We Go From Here?” The discussion is one of three off-the-record breakout sessions scheduled at the TPI Aspen Forum, to be held August 22 – 24 at the St. Regis in Aspen, Colorado.
Participants in the discussion include:
- James Assey, Executive Vice President, National Cable & Telecommunications Association
- Pablo Chavez, Managing Policy Counsel and Leader, Federal Public Policy Team, Google
- Steve DelBianco, Executive Director, NetChoice
- Alan Raul, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP
