How Sysadmins Can Protect Free Speech and Privacy on the Electronic Frontier
The USA PATRIOT Act broadly expanded the government's power to wiretap or demand records about your users' communications, and now the Justice Department is quietly developing plans for mandatory data retention that could completely decimate online privacy (and your own bottom line). How can a sysadmin legally, morally, and technically balance the legitimate needs of law enforcement against the First Amendment right to speak and read anonymously? EFF lawyer Kevin Bankston will fill you in on the latest developments in Internet privacy law and explain how you may be the last best hope for free speech and privacy online.
