Marvin Ammori on Threats to Open Video

We are thrilled to announce that Marvin Ammori will be delivering an address at this year’s Open Video Conference. Marvin is a Legal Fellow at the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Initiative and a Visiting Scholar at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society. He is an internationally recognized lawyer and expert in the areas of Internet law, media law, freedom of speech, and cybersecurity law.

Before joining the Open Technology Initiative, Marvin taught cyberlaw and international and domestic telecommunications at the University of Nebraska College of Law, where he helped found the space and telecommunications law program with the support of U.S. Strategic Command. He has also acted as counsel on some of the most important cases involving the future of the Internet. As Free Press‘s first lawyer in Washington, DC., he was the lead lawyer before the FCC on the Free Press-Comcast net neutrality case, which has been called a “model of the free-speech battles of the future” and which shaped several years of telecom lobbying in Washington, DC. Marvin is also a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Marvin’s legal writings focus on freedom of speech, security, and new technologies. His work has appeared in places such as the New York Times, Boston Review, and the Huffington Post, and he is a contributor to Balkinization, one of the leading blogs for legal commentary.

Marvin will address the threats to our essential communications infrastructure—especially online video.  Marvin will draw on his wealth of knowledge to help us examine the stakes involved in ensuring that video progresses as a democratic, participatory, and collaborative medium. He has been on the cutting edge of addressing legal issues in communication throughout his career and will be bringing his expertise to the questions that will shape the future of video on the Web.

Marvin will also be leading a session that will work towards developing a map that visualizes the many patterns, layers, processes, and structures of the open video ecosystem.
