The Open Internet and the Digital Economy
Wednesday 2 April 2014, central London
The digital economy, innovation, and consumers have benefited greatly from the open internet. The nature of the open internet also presents its own challenges, including how best to protect users and intellectual property against a background of the emerging role of big data and increasing concerns about security, access to content and personal privacy. How can the private and public sectors effectively respond to these concerns, whilst promoting the dynamism of the digital economy?
This year’s Internet Policy Forum on “Open Internet and the Digital Economy” will bring together a range of speakers and perspectives to discuss these issues, their influence in stimulating or stifling the digital economy, and the evolving impact of the open internet.
