Internet Governance (IG) touches upon many aspects of business law practice. This panel will provide an overview of the main IG bodies (ICANN: Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers and IGF: Internet Governance Forum) and main IG approaches (multilateral and multi-stakeholder). The panel will then show how this understanding of how IG works can help attorneys address common business law issues, such as domain name disputes, website hijacking, trademark infringement, SEO marketing abuses, and more.

Panelists:

  • Michael Kelly (moderator), Creighton University School of Law, Omaha, NE
  • David Satola, The World Bank, Washington D.C
  • Samaneh Tajalizadehkhoob, Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers, Netherlands
  • Mirja Kuehlewind, Ericsson Research Lab, Chair, Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Aachen, Germany

Presented by: Cyberspace Law Committee
