“Regulating the Internet?” 28th Annual International Bar Association Communications and Competition Conference

Jenner & Block Partner Samuel L. Feder participated in a panel discussion titled “Regulating the Internet?” on April 25, 2017. The session was part of the International Bar Association’s 28th Annual Communications and Competition Conference, a two-day event that brought together leading practitioners to explore current trends and issues in communications and competition law. Mr. Feder’s session explored the challenges of internet governance and regulation. Topics discussed included how zero rating and the internet of things will be approached by the different net neutrality models, what is changing for OTTs (over-the-top services) and telecom operators’ rights and obligations, and the impact of blockchain and internet governance on the telecom industry.

A former FCC general counsel, Mr. Feder is managing partner of Jenner & Block’s Washington, DC office and co-chair of the firm’s Communications, Internet and Technology Practice.  He represents clients on many significant communications issues including net neutrality, broadband classification, universal service and intercarrier compensation.
