Law and Technology Society (L-Tech) at NLSIU is proud to bring to you our
annual conference Consilience, 2015. The theme for this year’s
conference is the topic of Net Neutrality.
Neutrality refers to the idea that all data on the internet should be treated
equally. What this means is that you shouldn’t be charged more for using one
website or less for another. The internet is meant to be equal for all to
to maintain this network, telecom operators argue they have to spend thousands
of crores of rupees on licences and cable infrastructure without getting much
return. Therefore they want to be able to charge differently for using
different websites. This makes it is a very contentious issue as it involves a
tricky balancing of business interests v. freedoms of the digital age.
conference is going to be graced by a host of experts in the field, such as
Rajan Mathews (Director-General, Cellular Operators Association of India), T.V.
Ramachandran (Resident Director, Regulatory Affairs and Govt. Relations,
Vodafone Essar Ltd.), the Policy Director for Centre for Internet and Society,
Mr. Pranesh Prakash, and the general counsel of CISCO India, Mr. Joginder
Yadav. Students and experts alike shall give us differing opinions and
facilitate a great debate.
for the 9th & 10th of May, 2015, the
conference is shortly after April 24 and May 8 (the deadlines for
communicating comments and counter comments respectively to the consultation
paper issued by TRAI).
for free for Consilience 2015 on
