Wendy Seltzer, a Fellow at the Harvard Berkman Center, joined Howard Greenstein at the Supernova DC Mixer to discuss a number of subjects relevant to how law impacts the Network Age. She notes how technology innovation has brought control out to the user at the edges of the networks, and how intellectual property rules sometimes can stifle it. Wendy discusses patents and how they affect innovation and progress.
She also discusses the Chilling Effects Project, a clearinghouse for cease and diciest orders people receive that the project posts to help people understand their rights online. The discussion also includes how such takedown notices can get sent, and what a user might do about it.
Look forward to hearing more from Wendy at the Supernova Hub and at the conference in December.
