The Internet and International Jurisdiction - Harmony or Discord?, Jacob Rogers, Sr. Legal Counsel, Wikimedia Foundation

  • 12:05PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 128

Information wants to be free, and the internet enables citizens from everywhere in the world to mingle, share information, and learn from one another about far away events. While all these things are true, the reality of the internet is that it presents only a marginal barrier to identification. The laws and technologies of many places, both expected and unexpected, limit what people can do online, and how they can be tracked and identified while doing it.
