Current Issues in Law & Policy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This longest continuously-offered convention session in BEA history again this year looks at a wide range of important legal and policy issues. These are issues being addressed by Congress, the Administration, the FCC and other agencies, as well as in the courts, the states and in academia. Representatives of the federal government and industry trade associations, plus leading communications law and technical experts, will provide attendees with insights and answers on key topics relating to electronic communications and media. Barry Umansky, BEA’s President and former Deputy General Counsel of the NAB, will moderate the session and pose questions relevant to the “mobile and global” convention theme, such as broadband spectrum auctions/reallocation, the wireless and wired internet protocol transition, net neutrality and global approaches to privacy, copyright and security. The session also will look at the “new” FCC and other important communications law and media law issues confronting legal practitioners and policymakers. Following commentary by the expert panel, session attendees will be able to pose their own questions to the presenters.
