Regulating the Global Information Society

By Christopher T. Marsden | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

This volume arose out of a transatlantic workshop held at Warwick University on 3-5 June 1999. I acknowledge with gratitude the sponsorship of the seminar of the Legal Research Institute at Warwick Law School, and its Directors Lee Bridges and Mike McConville, together with the ESRC Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, Warwick, its Director Richard Higgott and Co-Director John Whalley. The seminar was held in connection with the 'European Media Regulation Group' seminar award R45126474197 from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

The transatlantic nature of this collection and workshop is a legacy of Susan Strange's willingness to share her insights and network of contacts in the months before her death in October 1998. It is also a tribute to the motivational skills of Mark Lemley and Michael Froomkin, and the goodwill of all those brought across the Atlantic to a location 'near Stratford'. The regulatory contribution is a tribute to the co-organisation arranged by John Dryden and especially Dimitri Ypsilanti, as well as Robert Pepper and Jonathan Levy. The FCC Office of Plans and Policy has been an outstanding supporter of the seminar award. Pamela Samuelson supplied the blueprint on how to organise a conference in the outstanding The Legal and Policy Framework for Global Electronic Commerce: A Progress Report, at Berkeley in March 1999 1 , and the workshop example was Jon Aronson's in May 1999 at the University of Southern California, which led to the e-conomy project. To all, my thanks.

Corporate support for the seminar was given by BBC Policy and Planning, Cable Communications Association, Energis plc, Telenor, Telia AB, VNU Business Publishing. As the ESRC award holder, I also gratefully acknowledge the help given by Martin Kender at the ESRC in expediting the award, and Warwick's Giles Carden, Simon Bailey, Annabel Eccles and Irene Blood in supervising the administration. Within the Law School, Barbara Gray and Aileen Stockham were invaluable.

I also warmly acknowledge the support given by corporate and regulator panelists in the seminars. I express here my gratitude to those presenters of papers at the conference whose contribution could not be included here but whose advice and counsel helped to inform the debate to which this collection contributes: Andrew Graham, Wolf Sauter, Debora Spar and Larry Lessig.
