Session: Blocking Content: Issues, Principles and Paths Forward

Time: 
Wed, 2011-09-28 11:00 - 12:30

Concise Description:
Policymakers around the globe are trying to identify appropriate national policy solutions to combat illegal online activities such as child pornography, violation of intellectual property rights and other cybercriminal activities. Some of these solutions propose leveraging global DNS to block or filter illegal content by mandating that DNS registries, registrars, or ISPs alter DNS behavior or modify DNS data.

How effective are these types of approaches in the short and long terms? What implications do they have for the global DNS, for the implementation of DNSSEC, and the overall functioning and evolution of the Internet? Are these the right solutions to the problem or are there other approaches that policy makers should be considering?
