Pacific Telecommunications Councils 2014 Annual Conference: Legal, Technological and Business Issues in a Global Digital Environment

Monday, January 20, 2014 - Tuesday, January 21, 2014

1:00 PM BST - 1:00 PM BST

Technological innovations create new opportunities for society by disrupting settled norms. However, the new services and products that result from innovation – regardless of their utility or profitability – often lead to novel legal, regulatory and business issues for market and governmental actors to resolve.

  • What challenges do the exponential growth of mobile services and the corresponding enormous pressure on spectrum demands create for government regulators, and how will they resolve such challenges?

  • In a changing environment where content can be viewed on various “smart” devices and over multiple digital delivery technologies, is it time to radically rethink the telecommunications laws and regulators’ roles in the telecommunications and media/broadcasting industries?

  • How will legal and regulatory telecommunications schemes adapt to enable the new digital world order while ensuring that issues such as privacy, data protection and cybersecurity are addressed effectively?

  • How have internet governance issues changed since WCIT 2012, and what technological and political challenges lay ahead?

Panel includes:

  • Sherrese Smith, Partner, Telecommunications, Media, and Technology and Privacy and Data Security practices

  • Tim Hewitt, Senior International Legal Counsel, KVH Co, Ltd, Japan

  • Gary Kim, Editor, IP Carrier, Carrier Evolution
