Aaron Swartz, the Greatest Internet Law Hits of 2012, and Chilling Effects. April 29, 2013

Posted by lborodkin in : Uncategorized , trackback

In episode 194 of This Week in Law, Denise Howell, Evan Brown, and newcomer (to me) Kevin Thompson and I had a really on-depth discussion of Aaron Swartz’s prosecution and what it means for the future of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

One hidden gem that I suggest looking at is Evan Brown’s wrap-up of the most interesting internate law cases of last year. It’s a little buried in the show notes but you’ll find it in the bookmark called “PDF Link”.

I noted a disturbing chilling effect on Evan Brown’s comments on TWiL from last Friday in episode 208, “The Devil Wears Prenda.”

It’s very weird to speak openly about the fact that one is not speaking openly, and especially coming from a technology law commentator. Look for a more robust blog post on that score in the near future.
