Microsoft is launching a new Web site Thursday to spur discussion on key technology policy debates about privacy, security, competition, cloud computing, intellectual property rights and other topics, the company announced.
Techpolicy.com, Microsoft's new Web site focused on technology, academics and policy (TAP), counts more than 80 scholars from around the country as its participants, including some from the University of California-Berkeley, Harvard University and Stanford University.
The site includes opinion articles, a calendar of events and a blog. Topics up for discussion include patents, licensing, software and services, antitrust, economic growth and the knowledge economy, the company said.
"TAP will bring to the forefront the best and brightest minds whose ideas will greatly influence the public debate on the most pressing technology issues of the day," said Kathryn Neal, academic relations director at Microsoft, in a news release.
