HPA 2018: Washington Update on the Future of Net Neutrality

In his annual HPA Tech Retreat address covering all the events in Washington, DC related to copyright law and other entertainment-related issues, Thompson Coburn attorney Jim Burger gave a tutorial on copyright basics he dubbed Copyright 101, and provided an overview on some of the issues related to the Library of Congress and the Music Modernization Act. But the majority of his focus was on the brouhaha over net neutrality and its recent repeal by the Republican-dominated (and chaired) FCC.

Burger showed a video of FCC chair Ajit Pai showing “all the things you can still do after the Obama era net neutrality is gone,” which included putting photos of your meal on Instagram, posting photos of cute animals, shopping for Christmas presents online, binge-watching TV shows and staying part of “your favorite fan community.”
