Retaining Government Power to Make Economic Policy for Internet Access: The Role of the First Amendment with Susan Crawford -- DeWitt Higgs Memorial Lecture

5/12/2014; 54 minutes

High-speed Internet access providers claim that government-imposed
limitations on their activities raise serious constitutional concerns.
But given the current absence of either competition or oversight in this market, providers are poised to have the market power to "edit" digital communications seen by users. Visiting Harvard Law School Professor and information law scholar Susan Crawford explores the current debate, elaborating on why there is a critical need for federal
oversight of the cable industry to preserve the quality and
reliability of high-speed internet access in America.
