Reception following the symposium
The symposium on interoperability and access in the network economy addresses policy issues that will be of vital importance to the upcoming revisions of U.S. telecommunications law.
Recent policy changes such as the decision to treat DSL as information service have fundamentally altered the dynamics of advanced communication services. At the same time, on August 5, 2005, the FCC has issues a policy statement to preserve the open an interconnected nature of the public Internet.
We invite scholars, policy makers and private interests to joint our outstanding group of leading experts to engage in a critical discussion of the economic and legal principles that should guide a forward-looking framework supportive of advanced information and communication infrastructures and services.
