In the Federal Register summary published on October 3, 2014 at 79 FR 59770 correct the “Proposed Agenda” caption to read:

Proposed Agenda:

The Office of General Counsel of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) provides panelist names and other information about the final event in the Open Internet roundtable series: “Internet Openness and the Law,” which will take place on October 7, 2014. This roundtable was previously announced in a Public Notice. At that time, it was unclear whether the roundtable would be a “meeting” of the Commission. As such, that Notice was not published in the Federal Register. This Notice shall serve as notice that a quorum of Commissioners may be present at the roundtable, in compliance with part 0, subpart F of the Commission's rules. This Notice does not, however, change the “permit-but-disclose” status of the Open Internet proceeding under the Commission's ex parte rules.
