Now at Black Hat: A Lawyer to Vet Your Hacking

August 13, 2008

There's a new service for conference speakers at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas this year: lawyers on call.

For the first time, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is staffing a booth at the show with lawyers, ready to take any skittish security researchers and give them a free legal consultation. The idea is to make it easier for hackers to talk about cutting-edge research, even when they're subject to what the EFF sees as bogus legal threats.
