FHH maven to speak at Silicon Flatirons conference in Boulder
If you’re planning to be in Boulder, Colorado on November 14, you can catch our colleague (and frequent CommLawBlog contributor) Mitchell Lazarus, who will be appearing at a conference on spectrum pollution. The affair is sponsored by the Silicon Flatirons Center. It will be held in the Wolf Law Building at the Colorado Law School. (Not going to be in Colorado? No problem – you can catch the proceedings through a live feed accessible from this site.)
The conference’s formal title is “Radio Spectrum Pollution: Facing the Challenge of a Threatened Resource”. It will consist of four separate panels and a keynote presentation (by Julius Knapp, the Chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology). The participants will examine the extent of, and trends in, radio noise pollution and will suggest how the associated policies and regulations might need to be adjusted to reflect changes in radio noise levels.
Mitchell will be on Panel 4, titled “Enforcement & Policy Initiatives”. Scheduled start time: 5:05 p.m. MT. Among the recommended readings for attendees is Mitchell’s recent post about an FCC enforcement action triggered by a light bulb, but you’ve probably already read it.
The Silicon Flatirons Center is the Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado.
