The relationship between internet rights, Open Access and Public Access are inter-related and are directly connected to labor and worker rights in the US and internationally . This panel will look at the issue of 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.
This will also focus on developments like the plan "Zero Rating" and free access proposals like the www.internet.org plan that is being pushed internationally and regulatory rights and how this affects labor and labor communication globally.
