Digital Sovereignty and Tiktok
Speaker: Erich Andersen
The conflict over who owns the 2.5 quintillion bytes of data produced each day is a $200 billion dollar question that has driven congressional hearings, consumer protection battles, and international trade conflict. Should it belong to the users who generate it, the apps who collect it, or the internet provider who brings these parties together?
Join Erich Andersen, General Counsel and Head of Corporate Affairs at TikTok, in a discussion on his experience navigating this complex regulatory landscape and the role governments and industry can play in answering these question.
Andersen manages legal, public policy, communications, and trust and safety at ByteDance (owner of TikTok as well as other products). Before joining ByteDance, Mr. Andersen served as the Corporate Vice President and Chief IP Counsel for Microsoft where he managed the Global Intellectual Property group.
