Conference Coverage

Session

America's Next Top Tech Lawsuits

Jason Schultz, Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation
Danny O'Brien, editor, Need To Know

Date: Thursday, March 09
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Madeleine AB

Publishers threaten Google Print; Techmo shuts down videogame skinners; Xbox modders go to jail; Lynn blows the lid off Cisco; Blizzard emulators breach the DMCA; image archives under fire; SCO still trying to bugger Linux; blog owner sued for enabling comments; P2P goes under the Supreme Court's knife; FCC burned on the Broadcast Flag; patents.

Is this the end or just the beginning? Is Greasemonkey the next Grokster? Are closed APIs DMCA minefields? Are patents the biggest threat to open source, or the other way round? As policy and law continues to invade the world of remixing, modding, and DIY, the EFF's Schultz sums up the wins and losses in 2005, and where the next attacks on innovators and consumer-creators will be coming from.
