|PALO ALTO, Ca. – In December, the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) will be held in Dubai to consider international rules governing the Internet.
At the conference, certain nations may advocate for International governance of Internet services and infrastructure that, if adopted, would result in international regulations that require compliance by member nations. On Tuesday, November 27, a distinguished panel of experts will convene at Stanford Law School for “Sticky WCIT: Is This the End of the Internet?” The panel will discuss the impact this global UN conference could have on innovative freedom that has been central to the Internet’s evolution, to economic gains for nations worldwide and to Silicon Valley’s prosperity.
