Presenters & Discussants

Other Events of Interest

Immediately preceding the March 5 work-in-progress event are two other events of interest to Internet Law scholars. We encourage you to join us for one or both of these events.

On March 4, 2011, Santa Clara University is hosting a symposium entitled “47 U.S.C. § 230: a 15 Year Retrospective” to recognize the 15 year anniversary of the statute’s enactment. Featured speakers include former Representative Christopher Cox (one of the two named co-sponsors of the bill that evolved into the statute), Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, Kenneth Zeran (the plaintiff in the seminal 230 case Zeran v. America Online), Representative Zoe Lofgren and many more. The event is sponsored by the High Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara University School of Law, and co-sponsors include Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center, Stanford Law School’s Law, Science & Technology program, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, the New York Law School’s Institute for Information Law and Policy, the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Media Law Resource Center and the Silicon Valley Intellectual Property Law Association. For more on this event, see Work-in-progress participants get free admission to this symposium.

On March 3, 2011, the Stanford Technology Law Review will hold a symposium on current and emerging issues of secondary or intermediary liability on the Internet. Panels will explore these issues in the context of copyright, trademark, and aspects of privacy law. The event will take place at Stanford Law School.  For more information, visit the event website at
