Brief Outline

The Web is rapidly becoming part of the common world-wide technical infrastructure. As it does so, governments become legitimately concerned with a variety of issues that have been traditionally regulated at a local or national level. The Web differs from existing infrastructures, however, in that access is mediated by a programmable device. This panel will provide developers with an introduction to both the public policy issues and the technology issues involved in addressing this problem. The 90 minute session will include speakers from both the U.S. and Europe about the importance of developing technology in these areas to enable reasonable regulatory decisions; it will include talks about existing products in this space; and it will outline the kinds of products that will be needed but do not yet exist.
