WEBCAST JAN 18: How Public Interest Values Shape A Better Internet

livestreamOn Tuesday 18 January 2022 at 2pm-3pm EST (19:00-20:00 UTC) Public Knowledge hosts a discussion ‘How Public Interest Values Shape A Better Internet‘. This month marks the anniversary of a series of coordinated protests that led to the withdrawal of two proposed laws in the United States Congress: the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). The panel will consider how public interest values have shaped the internet so far, how the internet has changed since the 2012 blackouts, and how the public interest community must ensure they continue building a better internet for everyone.
