Topics include future accessibility and democratization of the Internet; the creation and support of a borderless end-user-driven Internet, whether in Japan, the United States, China or elsewhere; transparency and accountability; and striking the balance between protecting personal freedoms and squelching fraudulent online activity that puts business and society in jeopardy.
