This week in Washington IP news, both houses of Congress remain quiet during their regularly scheduled work periods. Among policy institutes, the Center for Strategic & International Studies hosts a pair of events exploring ways to address Russian and Chinese advances in anti-satellite capabilities, as well as efforts to leverage the use of remote conferencing technologies in vogue during the COVID-19 pandemic to address the broadband Internet gap in developing nations. The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation will host an event exploring policy recommendations from last October’s digital antitrust report from the House Antitrust Subcommittee, and the Hudson Institute will discuss Europe’s difficult position between the United States and China as those two countries compete for dominance in artificial intelligence and 5G networks.
