Freedom to Connect with Joe Van Eaton

April 3rd, 2006

Sit anywhere in the main theater at the AFI Silver today and you’re likely to be surrounded by names you’ve read in print and online. During the opening sessions, I wound up next to someone I’d met before in person AND had recognized online, due to his great work defending local franchising — Joe Van Eaton from the law firm, Miller & Van Eaton.

While I had him trapped next to me in the auditorium, I signaled Colin to grab his trusty recorder to lock Joe in for a quick interview. We felt that he would be uniquely suited to explain why the fight for local franchising is intertwined with network neutrality. Listen to hear him explain why a shift from local to national control would have a major impact on the enforceability of any network neutrality law. – Daniell Krawczyk, Technology Editor at Media Policy Blog
