Senate Committee Addresses “Future of the Internet”

On April 22, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation held a hearing titled “The Future of the Internet.” The hearing addressed consumer expectations and network operation, including network neutrality.

The hearing featured a wide array of witnesses, including Kevin J. Martin, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and Lawrence Lessig, Professor of Law at Stanford Law School. Testimony of all witnesses is available on the Committee website.

Professor Lessig, who for years focused his energies on copyright and Creative Commons, recently turned his focus to the influence of money in politics in the form of the Change Congress movement. He has developed a series of video lectures on the project which explain his ideas. Check them out for a great Friday break!
