The conference will feature a luncheon keynote address by J.

Additionally, the conference will include panels on social networking, ICANN’s gTLD program, the Protect IP Bill from U.S. and European perspectives, as well as a panel on the roles and responsibilities of intermediaries and rights holders. The event will conclude with an on-site networking cocktail party.
