Description

Regulating the Tech Giants

A Media Society/Simons Muirhead & Burton LLP event

They are now the masters of the internet and advertising universe. The FAANGs - Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google. They dominate the modern media and have piled up mountains of cash. But now they are facing increasing scrutiny and criticism. With a Government White Paper on the subject due shortly, The Media Society tonight asks whether it is time to regulate the Tech Cos - whether it is time to PULL IN THE FAANGs?

Join this active and controversial debate.

Venue kindly provided by Simons, Muirhead & Burton LLP

In the Chair: Phil Harding, Journalist, Broadcaster and former Editor 'Today' BBC Radio 4.

Panel: Rory Cellan Jones, Technology Correspondent BBC News; Vinous Ali, Head of Policy Tech UK (whose members include Facebook & Google); Martin Moore, Centre for the Study of Media, Communication and Power, Kings College London and Editor 'Digital Dominance'; Dorothy Byrne, Head of News and Current Affairs, Channel Four.
