Guest Host: Matthew Felling

In the age of the Internet, you might think national borders are unimportant. But the world wide web also amplifies the reach of national laws. And many companies — especially newspapers, publishing houses, and IT companies — are confronting confusing and often contradictory regulations governing free expression. Tech Tuesday explores how our media landscape is affected by libel laws in Britain, anti-extremist regulations in France, journalist-suppression in China, and more.

  • John Morris General Counsel, Director of the Internet Standards, Technology and Policy Project, Center for Democracy and Technology
  • Jonathan Zittrain Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation, Oxford University; Visiting Professor of Law, Stanford University
  • Jason Criss Senior Associate, Covington & Burling
