Constitutional Law in Cyberspace

Tutorial Summary

Mike Godwin, general counsel of Wikimedia Foundation and former staff attorney with Center for Democracy and Technology, Public Knowledge, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, will teach the basics of constitutional law in cyberspace, with an emphasis on free-speech and privacy issues. This tutorial is designed to inform non-lawyers and lawyers alike about the constitutional issues that underlie computer-crime and computer civil-liberties cases, as well as about the policy issues relating to intellectual property and jurisdiction on the Net.
