Internet Law II

This course is an overview of the major policies, laws, and extralegal norms by which the infrastructure or transmission layer of the Internet is governed. The course complements (and is not cumulative of) Internet Law. We will cover legal problems associated with the proprietary nature of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g., licensing, franchising, “open access,” and municipal Wi-Fi), network management (e.g., network neutrality), competition (e.g., set-top box competition and vertical integration), privacy and data protection (e.g., as it relates to law enforcement, national security, and private third-party access to user information), as well as related topics regarding government regulation of the distribution of content or data, internet service provider immunity, and the digital divide.
