dc.description.abstractNet neutrality - the rule that broadband providers must treat all Internet traffic equally - has a contentious history and an uncertain future. Rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission in 2015 with strong popular support prevent blocking or discrimination in Internet traffic. This year, the FCC and members of Congress have proposed repealing those rules. Join Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Mitch Stoltz in a discussion of what Net Neutrality is and isn’t, what it means for technologists, and what might replace it. Mitch will also talk about a bill the Georgia Legislature is now considering (H.R. 509) that would require every Internet-enabled device sold in the state to include “digital blocking capability” defined by the state. Mitch will lead a discussion about how technologists, students, and entrepreneurs can speak out about this dangerous bill and other bad Internet policy.en_US
