The Marco Civil, Brazil's newly-signed Internet law, and this week's NetMundial conference have draw attention to the future of global Internet governance. Net neutrality and Internet privacy are just a couple of the topics at stake as the global community grapples with how to (or how not to) regulate the Internet. Greater Internet access around the world has lent countries like Brazil an important voice in defining a new regulatory paradigm. Whatever consensus the international community reaches will have important and far-reaching implications for Internet-related services, producers, and users alike. Join us for a discussion of the latest trends in Internet governance, as we explore what impact these trends will have on Internet providers and users around the world.
