Campus Party - Berlin 2012

August 21, 2012 - 9:00am to August 26, 2012 - 5:00pm
Berlin, Germany

In the online space, our basic rights to speak and read are under constant threat. Rainey Reitman, activism director of the EFF, will discuss how civil liberties online are under attack and how we can defend them. She’ll specifically talk about how legislative proposals in the United States such as SOPA and cybersecurity proposals could create censorship and surveillance regimes that affect people worldwide. She’ll also outline how online service providers we use daily can become complicit in facilitating surveillance or stifling online speech. Finally, she’ll talk about advocacy efforts to defend free speech, innovation, and individual privacy against corporations and governments who would trample on the rights on Internet users.

Rainey will be speaking at 3 events at Campus Party:

  1. "Defending the Free and Uncensored Internet" on the Free Software Stage at 11 AM on Thursday;
  2. roundtable discussion on privacy on the main stage at 10 AM on Friday;
  3. And a talk on "How to Change the World Through Your Blog" on the social media stage at 10 AM on Saturday.
