Policymakers To Assess 'State of the Net' 2007

A group that works with lawmakers of both parties in Congress will hold a day-long conference on Wednesday, Jan. 31 to look at the State of the Net.

The Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee will hold the event at a hotel on Capitol Hill, which will also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Congressional Internet Caucus. The State of the Net Conference last year attracted more than 350 attendees and more than half of the registered attendees are congressional and government staff working on Internet and digital policy, organizers say.

U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.) and Sen. John Sununu (R-N.H.), co chairs of the Congressional Internet Caucus, will offer keynote addresses.

Experts are set to explore such topics as whether the U.S. is falling behind or positioned to leap forward in global broadband rankings and whether U.S. copyright law can tolerate "mixing and mashing" in user-generated content.

Several academics will look at the controversy of "Net Neutrality."
