Professor Gus Hurwitz, was a featured speaker during a panel titled "Does the FTC Have Authority to Issue UMC Rules?" hosted by TechFreedom on Oct. 21.

During the panel, Hurwitz shared his insight and perspective to help answer questions like: how will the FTC's crusade against the tech industry affect long standing antitrust policy? Is there merit to the FTC's lawsuits alleging Facebook as a monopoly? Is the FTC prepared for the barrage of rulemaking litigation to follow? What is the future of the FTC under Chair Kahn?

The panel was moderated by Bilal Sayyed, former director of the FTC’s Office of Policy Planning, and featured speakers Hon. Maureen Ohlhausen, Former Chair and Commissioner of the FTC, Prof. Thomas W. Merrill, Columbia Law School, Prof. Justin (Gus) Hurwitz, University of Nebraska College of Law, Peter J.
