“Regulation of Social Media and Mobile Media” Talk Slides

By Eric Goldman

Last month, I spoke at the ABA Antitrust Section’s always-well-done Consumer Protection Conference. This time I was recruited as the provocateur to discuss the challenges of regulating social media and mobile media. Regular readers know where I stand on that question. My talk slides.

I did forget to make one joke in my talk, so I’ll share it here. Can you imagine how much crime-fighting time that Dick Tracy lost while trying to scroll through the privacy policy on his wrist TV? BTW, the other device on that slide is a Kaypro, the very first computer my family owned over 3 decades ago running the long-forgotten CP/M operating system. They marketed it as a portable device, calling it “luggable” because it weighed in about 30 pounds.
