Inside Bay Area quotes Professor Lawrence Lessig about the upcoming FCC hearing at Stanford:

Stanford law professor and cyberspace expert Lawrence Lessig said he plans to attend the hearing.

"It is very significant that the FCC will make it possible for Silicon Valley to enter a Washington debate," Lessig said in an e-mail Thursday, calling the questions over network neutrality "critically important to the net."

Lessig, who said he hopes to testify at the hearing, "is considered one of Silicon Valley's top experts in the field of Internet regulation."
