The digital broadband industries continue to evolve, with the threat of disruptive innovation and concerns with market power both lingering in the minds of policymakers. With respect to both concerns, the role of regulatory oversight, antitrust law, and intellectual property policy all promise to influence the ease of entry, the extent of the restrictions (or lack thereof) on incumbents, and the nature and pace of technological change. To evaluate the interplay of these three regimes—industry-specific regulation, antitrust, and intellectual property—Silicon Flatirons will bring together a range of leaders from government, academia, and industry to evaluate how effective these regimes are in regulating industry structure and what policy reforms are appropriate for the ever-changing digital broadband environment.
