Welcome to the roundup of notable coverage and announcements from the Niskanen Center for the week of Friday, August 14.


Ryan Hagemann wrote for Watchdog about a recent ruling from the International Trade Commission on the importation of digital files.  In the article, Mr. Hagemann cites a letter penned by the Niskanen Center and the R Street Institute stating that the ruling is a far too broad interpretation of the Commission’s purview.  Mr. Hagemann argues that the Internet ought to be more free from the oversight of such government institutions as the ITC.


The Niskanen Center’s David Bier wrote an article for the Foundation for Economic Education on the recent change in attitude of the American public towards legal immigration.  In the article, Mr. Bier highlights the overwhelming support Americans have for increased legal immigration, which is at an all time high for the past 20 years.
