Maybe you have heard of net neutrality, but you don’t know what it means. Earlier this month there was a landmark court case by the DC Circuit striking down net neutrality. The case was brought by Verizon against the Federal Communications Commission. Though the FCC lost, many see it as a win. For cable, telco and internet companies, it may be a loss. Tune in to hear why.

American Roslyn Layton is a Ph.D. Fellow in Internet Economics, Center for Communication, Media and Information Studies at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is earning her PhD in net neutrality. Before entering academy, she worked in the software industry in Silicon Valley, India and Europe. She is also a Vice-President of Strand Consult, an independent consultancy for mobile operators around the world. She is also a Visiting Fellow at the Center for Communications, Information and Technology at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC. More information
