Update on Legal and Regulatory Issues Impacting the R&E Community
Time 10/05/11 01:15PM-02:30PM
Update of legal issues since prior panel on legal topics in the spring. This panel of experts will address the wide range of federal policy and legal issues affecting the R&E community. The panel will address several Federal Communications Commission proceedings impacting the R&E community. The panel will also address issues relating to the legislation in Wisconsin earlier this year concerning Wiscnet and concerns that R&E networks may have relating to such issues that may arise in other states as well. The panel will explore how these legal matters relate to the U.S. UCAN project and the expansion of service to the broader spectrum of community anchor institutions under U.S. UCAN. It is the goal of this panel to increase awareness about this converging set of policy, legal and regulatory considerations and thereby enhance the community's ability to develop a cohesive response to these opportunities and challenges as they unfold.
