A local digital rights community group in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF) will host this event:
This month's speaker will be Christopher Brown. His novel Rule of Capture, the beginning of a series of speculative legal thrillers about a criminal defense lawyer in an authoritarian USA, is forthcoming from Harper in 2019.
Christopher is going to be speaking about the tyranny of contract, about how click-wrap agreements and NDAs have subverted the emancipatory potential of the Internet, indentured its creators, and enabled our current dystopias—and how new technologies may help us build a new paradigm.
