Net Neutrality - Part 4: Warfare

NetNeutality 2.jpg

In the final installment of our series on net neutrality, I talked by phone with Prof. Barbara Cherry of the Media School at Indiana University. Our topics of discussion ranged from primary definitions of regulatory structures, how those structures are represented in media accounts, the legal structures undergirding much of this debate, and the economic and ideological stakes of these regulatory policies. Prof. Cherry worked for many years as an attorney representing telecommunications companies, AT&T and Ameritech. She then worked for several years as senior counsel at the FCC in the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis. She received her Ph.D. from Northwestern University and now teaches courses on public policy, deregulation, net neutrality, communications infrastructure, law, and economics.
