Panel Picker Voting Begins for SXSW 2011: Vote for EFF's Panels!

The panel picking process has begun for SXSW 2011, which runs March 11-20 in Austin, Texas. This is your chance to vote for the panels you want to see at SXSW Music, Film, and Interactive. EFF has proposed several panels this year, including The Epic Fail of BitTorrent Indie Film Lawsuits, Legal Bootcamp: Electronic Privacy Law for Internet Startups, Identity Correction: Fair Use or Fraud?, I Can Has Appz and Privacy Too? and Big Brother on a Big Screen.

SXSW represents one of EFF's greatest opportunities to reach out directly to the filmmakers, writers, musicians, and software engineers who create online content, as well as the fans who want to post, critique, and remix that content. Every vote takes us one step closer to bringing EFF issues to SXSW. Vote now, because voting closes on Friday, August 27th.
