    The First Amendment Law Review and its partners, The Center for Media Law and Policy and The American Constitution Society, held it's annual symposium event this on October 24, 2014. This year's topic is Net Neutrality: First Amendment Issues in Internet Regulation. We are pleased to welcome Marvin Ammori, Future Tense Fellow at the New America Foundation as our keynote speaker, as well as other prestigious scholars from across the country. As with any seminal debate, network neutrality—“net neutrality,” for short—presents a potential sea change for internet users and providers. Advances in technology and business practices are raising issues for both regulators and consumers, as the players compete for control over one of our most powerful modern tools.
    Each of these powers must contend also with the First Amendment. A shield for some and a sword for others, the First Amendment plays an important yet sometimes understated role in determining the future of internet access, although it is essential to that future—any resolution must pass through the First Amendment, and must answer the issues it presents to the net neutrality debate before it can rest.
