This panel will discuss copyright in the wake of SOPA/PIPA: how law gets made, how it impacts innovation, and how it interacts with civil liberties, particularly free speech & privacy. It consists of Andrew Bridges, Margot Kaminski, Wendy Seltzer, & a surprise industry guest.
Bridges has successfully argued numerous copyright cases on the behalf of innovative technologies. Recently, he represented Dajaz1, the music site seized by DHS for over a year that galvanized SOPA/PIPA opposition.
Kaminski is Executive Director of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. She identified substantive civil liberty problems with the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), which was rejected by the European Parliament after widespread protest by European citizens.
Seltzer founded and developed the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse, which studies legal threats to online speech and activity. She is on the board of Tor, and served on the ICANN board.
