  • 099

Saturday, July 19, 2014: 11:00 am (Manning): Hear from lawyers, activists, technologists, and international policy analysts from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the nation's premiere digital civil liberties group fighting for freedom and privacy in the computer age. Since HOPE Number Nine, much has happened on the Internet. From Aaron Swartz' tragic death to Edward Snowden's revelations, from TPP to Stop Watching Us, they will put it all in context and answer your questions. This session will include updates on current EFF issues such as their efforts to end mass spying both at home and abroad, their fight against the use of intellectual property claims to shut down free speech and halt innovation, a discussion of their technology projects to protect privacy and speech online, updates on their cases against the NSA, litigation and legislation affecting security research, what EFF is doing to open access to scholarly works, how they're fighting the expansion of the surveillance state, and much more. Half the session will be given over to Q&A, so it's your chance to ask EFF questions about the law and technology issues that are important to you.
