Join us to discuss content moderation, intermediary liability, and copyright infringement. Our two panels can be found below.
Who decides what is free speech and what is hate speech? Right now, determining where that line is falls to Internet companies. But is this the right decision? In this panel, we’ll discuss how Internet providers can negotiate the thorny issues associated with being ‘stuck in the middle’. This session will use difficult scenarios to set the stage for discussion, and show how Internet companies can plan ahead by setting clear and open criteria around acceptable usage. In both the U.S. and EU, we will show how only transparency and openness can save these companies from many bad possible outcomes.

What do Tom Cruise and Kim Kardashian have in common? They have both sued for copyright infringement. Who would have thought a religion and porn would have added so much to the American jurisprudence? And who is open to talking about it in an in-depth and academic way? We are. Next time you watch porn or read Dianetics, make sure to thank the actors and religiously-devoted for shaping the modern internet! Our Founding Fathers never saw this coming when they wrote the Progress Clause.
