Co-chair, Broadband and Cable Industry Law 2020, Practising Law Institute
This program, hosted by the Practising Law Institute and co-chaired by DWT partner Cristina Chou, featured a cutting-edge analysis of federal initiatives and FCC regulations. It examined the latest negotiation and regulatory trends, current case law, and latest technology forecasts. The program was presented by the country's leading outside and in-house counsel representing cable operators, cable programmers, and online service providers—and the regulators themselves—as a means of providing attendees with an understanding of what has transpired in broadband and cable law over the past year and of where we might be heading.
The panel "Privacy, Cybersecurity Update: What's Next?," which included DWT partner Rachel Marmor among the featured panelists, addressed the privacy and cybersecurity matters once again taking center stage in the news, as well as in policy and legal disputes. The panelists explored the latest issues, including the subjects policymakers, regulators, and industry are discussing, the boundary between FCC and FTC jurisdiction, and whether or not Section 230 should be revised.
