More and more Internet policy is finding its way into international trade deals. This development reflects the realization by governments, companies, and activists that rules governing digital data now exert a larger impact on GDP growth than the centuries-old trade in goods. The Trump Administration is in negotiations on several fronts to revise existing trade deals including NAFTA. Items new to the negotiating table include algorithm integrity, micro-advertising, and intermediary liability protections. Other familiar trade issues include privacy and intellectual property rules. Join our panel of experts while they ponder the the creation of Internet policy by international trade.
