Friday, July 13, 2012: 4:00 pm (Sassaman): Law enforcement and lawmakers have been showing much more of an interest in regulating the Internet. The hacker community needs to understand how certain legal methods work like IT infrastructure attacks. This talk will explain legal processes such as subpoenas, search warrants, and e-discovery as IT infrastructure attacks, as well as how to talk to lawyers. This is an evolving topic as the environment has been constantly changing and, of course, has become more complicated. Also included: a discussion on the recent Megaupload and other domain seizures, forced IP and search engine blocking, and a question and answer session on related matters.
