Who We Are

September 2012

Thank you for your interest in the Media and Technology Committee!

The Committee is responsible for law and policy issues that affect competition in the development and commercialization of the hardware, software, and distribution networks for voice, data, and information. The Committee’s mandate includes sectors like telecommunications, information technology, and social media. As communications and computer industries converge over time, this Committee will continue to address the legal and policy issues that confront competitors, customers, suppliers, regulators, and policymakers on issues as diverse as (i) competition among distributors and distribution media, (ii) competition among content providers, (iii) vertical integration of content and distribution, and (iv) access to intellectual property and communications networks.

We hope you will join us in our activities this year:

Programs and Teleseminars

Spring Meeting. Each year, the Committee presents programs at the annual Antitrust Law Spring Meeting. In 2012, for instance, we presented a program on privacy issues surrounding the use of mobile devices.

Informal Seminars. In addition, several times a year, the Committee presents informal seminars or “brown-bag sessions.” We also sponsor, from time to time, more formal teleseminars that provide participants with CLE credit.

If you are interested in presenting a seminar topic, or if you would like to suggest a topic, please contact the Committee chair, Art Burke.


Treatises (e.g., Antitrust Law Developments, Telecom Antitrust Handbook). The Committee plays an active role in drafting and updating the Section’s preeminent reference work, Antitrust Law Developments, as well as taking part in drafting other relevant treatises and reference materials. If you would like to assist, please contact Ankur Kapoor.

Icarus. We welcome article submissions for our newsletter, Icarus. If you are interested in contributing or assisting in Icarus’s publication, please contact Sujal Shah or Emilio Varanini.

Monthly e-Bulletin. We are also working toward distributing to our members a monthly e-bulletin that summarizes recent key cases and developments, and we are actively seeking members’ participation in this effort. If you would like to help us, please contact Art Burke or Megan Jones.

Website and Discussion List

Committee Website. We welcome volunteers’ assistance in keeping our website updated. If you have suggestions or would like to help, please contact Dana Wagner.

Committee Discussion List. We use our moderated discussion list to distribute the Committee newsletter and e-bulletin, to share information about upcoming Committee programs, and to discuss news of interest to our members. If you would like to volunteer or recommend content for distribution using the Committee Discussion List, contact Jason Daniels.

Please reach out to us to take part in any of these projects or to let us know of any other ideas you might have. We welcome your participation, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Arthur J. Burke, Committee Chair
