This program will explore the current boundaries between FCC and FTC jurisdiction over protecting consumer privacy. The panelists will discuss: the impact of the Restoring Internet Freedom proceeding, restoring broadband as a lightly-regulated “information service;” the latest on the 9th Circuit’s en banc review of the decision in FTC v. AT&T Mobility; and legislation on the issue, including the Balancing the Rights of Web Surfers Equally and Responsibly (BROWSER) Act of 2017, introduced by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
