In the wake of the disclosures about government surveillance and the rise of corporate-run applications and protocols, is the idea of an "unowned" Internet still a credible one? The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is pleased to invite the community to a panel discussion on February 3rd, 2014 that will address this question as well as explore the potential for reforms in policy, technology, and corporate and consumer behavior.

Panelists include:

  • Yochai Benkler, Berkman Professor for Entrepreneurial Legal Studies at Harvard Law School
  • Ebele Okobi, Global Head and Senior Legal Director for Human Rights, Yahoo!
  • Bruce Schneier, CTO of CO3 Systems and Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society
  • Benjamin Wittes, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and Editor in Chief of Lawfare
  • Jonathan Zittrain, Co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, will moderate the discussion.
