Catholic University law school Professor Donna Gregg, director of the Institute for Communications Law Studies at the Columbus School of Law, spoke on a panel at The Free State Foundation’s Fifth Annual Telecom Policy Conference, “Completing the Transition to a Digital Word: How to Finish the Job and Why it Matters.”
Gregg discussed “The Right Regulatory Approach for Video Providers.” Originally scheduled to take at the National Press Club, intense interest in the discussion and the crowd it drew prompted a move to a larger venue at the National Association of Home Builders auditorium.
The March 21 symposium also featured as keynote speaker Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and its Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet. Former FCC Chairman and CUA law adjunct communications professor Michael Powell, now the CEO of the National Cable Telecommunication Association, was a fellow guest on Gregg’s panel.
The Free State Foundation is a non-profit, nonpartisan think tank that promotes understanding of free market, limited government, and rule of law principles at the federal level and in Maryland.
It has sponsored previous discussions on broadband and Internet policy, video and wireless regulation, and spectrum policy and spectrum auctions.
