Video-Labor, Internet Rights, Open Access, Zero Rating And Public Access
|Labor, Internet Rights, Open Access, Zero Rating And Public Access-Is Facebook and The Corporate Internet Bringing A Free and Democratic Communication Network Globally?
Internet rights, open access and public access are interrelated and directly connected to labor and worker rights in the US and internationally. This discussion will focus on what constitutes Internet rights, various proposals for open access and the history of public access both in the US and internationally. It will look at how labor and workers internationally are grappling with these issues and the use of the Internet by corporations and by workers organizing for their rights.
It will also focus on developments like the plan "Zero Rating" and free access proposals like thewww.internet.org plan controlled by Facebook that is being pushed outside the United States and regulatory rights. We will look at how this affects workers and labor communication globally.
