Event Details

Have you ever borrowed a smartphone without asking? Modified a URL? Scraped a website? Called an undocumented API? Congratulations – you might have violated federal law.

Free, but RSVP is required.

This event aims to provide a geek perspective on the CFAA. Leading researchers, tinkerers, and entrepreneurs will explain the broad reach of computer trespass law and their first-hand experience with its chilling effects. All agree that serious intrusions warrant a remedy. But how can the law better distinguish between innovation and exploitation?
