Abstract
The Internet makes lives better, around the world, in ways people couldn't have imagined not even a decade ago.  It sparks prosperity, inspires dissent, improves education, and encourages freedom.  But all of the good it does is under threat, largely from governments. He will discuss where those threats are coming from, and the critical importance for us all that we overcome them.

David Drummond joined Google in 2002, initially as vice president of corporate development. Today as senior vice president and chief legal officer, he leads Google’s global teams for legal, government relations, corporate development (M&A and investment projects) and new business development (strategic partnerships and licensing opportunities).

David was first introduced to Google in 1998 as a partner in the corporate transactions group at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, one of the nation’s leading law firms representing technology businesses. He served as Google’s first outside counsel and worked with Larry Page and Sergey Brin to incorporate the company and secure its initial rounds of financing. During his tenure at Wilson Sonsini, David worked with a wide variety of technology companies to help them manage complex transactions such as mergers, acquisitions and initial public offerings.
