The Case of Aaron Swartz: Justice in the Cyber Age

February 20, 2013 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Fordham Law School, New York City

On February 20th, EFF's Trevor Timm—along with Scott Horton, Christopher Soghoian, and Wesley Yang—will discuss the Aaron Swartz case at Fordham Law School at 7 pm. They will be looking at the various implications of the Swartz tragedy: How can the law catch up with technology and innovation?  Was the prosecution ethical and proper - or overreaching?  Does the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act warrant reconsideration?  Where does the issue of freedom of information fit into this—and other—cases?  Should there be limits to freedom of information and how should we as a society assess those limits?

This event is free and open to the public, and will be held at Fordham Lowenstein Building, 12th Floor 113 West 60th Street in New York City. Please RSVP with Fordham Law School's Center on National Security.
