Nisha from the Open Rights Group sez,
Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow and Wendy Seltzer will be leading this year's Open Rights Group conference (aka ORGCon) in London on 24th March 2012.
From the government snooping on your data to default internet blocking and monitoring to the corporate capture of state and democratic institutions - we'll be covering vast regions of the digital rights sphere. And there may even be a competition or two! Sessions will include:
* Lawrence Lessig on "Recognizing the fight we're in: A plea for some realism about IP activism"
* Cory Doctorow on "The Coming War on General Purpose Computing: The copyright wars were only the first level"
* Wendy Seltzer on the SOPA/PIPA challenge in the US
* Ross Anderson, Cambridge Professor of Security Engineering, on the problems with Anonymity in Open Government Data.
* Tom Lowenthal, Mozilla Privacy Expert, on the Do Not Track - tracking cookies, advertising and privacy
* Graham Smith, Legal Expert, on "'Have warrant, will extradite - copyright cops go international"
* Theo Bertram, UK Policy Manager for Google, and Jeff Lynn, COADEC Director, on the Communications Bill: Copyright Enforcement
And much much more...
