I have a small comment coming out in a symposium volume of the Loyola (Chicago) Law Journal in which I was the discussant on a panel about “Regulatory Aspects of Internet Governance.” In Time to Hug a Bureaucrat (.pdf) I summarize and at times critique interesting papers by Jim Speta, Phil Weiser, and Jay Kesan. The first two papers are about the proper scope of the FCC's jurisdiction; I spend the bulk of my comment talking about Jay's analysis of BBOnline and the UDRP. As we come at these issues from very different perspectives, and my paper is uncharacteristically short (sixteen pages and, well, a few footnotes here and there), it may be entertaining.
