Thousands of security researchers, information security professionals and hackers descend on Las Vegas each summer for a trio of conferences: Black Hat USA, DEF CON, and BSides Las Vegas. We launched our Coders' Rights Project at Black Hat four years ago to help programmers and developers navigate the murky laws surrounding security research. Every year since then, our attorneys have been on hand in Las Vegas to provide legal information on reverse engineering, vulnerability reporting, copyright law, free speech, and more, and we're thrilled to return again this summer.
If you'd like to make an appointment to speak with EFF attorneys at Black Hat, DEFCON or BSides Las Vegas, contact us by Wednesday, July 18, with the name of the conference in the subject line. If we can't assist you for any reason, we'll make every effort to put you in touch with a lawyer who can.
