The panel, to be held at Clyde’s of Gallery Place at 707 7th Street NW, in Washington, is certain to be the “must attend” event on this increasingly hot topic of “New Retransmission Consent Battles and Licensing Video Content.” The panel will be moderated by Sarah Lai Stirland, Assistant Managing Editor of BroadbandBreakfast.com, and a veteran reporter on intellectual property- and technology-related matters.

The event continues BroadbandBreakfast.com’s new monthly breakfast series on controversies involving copyright, trademark and patent-related subjects, launched in May 2010 with a panel on the Google Book Search Settlement.

The group will discuss how retransmission consent rules, which were intended to level the playing field between local broadcasters and large cable operators. Now, decades later, how some argue that the rules are a significant hurdle to a smoothly operating marketplace, with competing distribution platforms (cable, DBS, telecom) and distribution business models (linear, on-demand, internet).

The Intellectual Property Breakfast Club is sponsored by the Intel Corporation, Public Knowledge, and Time Warner Cable.

This event is free, on the record and open to the public. Registration is available at http://ipbreakfast.eventbrite.com.

Wednesday, June 1, 2022, 12 Noon ET –Broadband Mapping and Data

Now that the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Notice of Funding Opportunity has been released, attention turns to a core activity that must take place before broadband infrastructure funds are distributed: The Federal Communications Commission’s updated broadband maps. Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, as implemented by the NTIA’s Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment program, these address-level maps from the FCC will determine the allocation of funds among states and serve as a key source of truth. Our panelists will also consider the role of state-level maps, the NTIA challenge process and other topics. Join Broadband Breakfast as we return to one of the subjects that we know best: Broadband data and mapping.
