 Digital Dilemmas: Discussing Responses to Internet Censorship and Surveillance

 Tuesday, March 25, 2008
 NYU Law School, Vanderbilt Hall, Room 214
 40 Washington Square South


 Please join us for a panel discussion, with a reception to follow.

 When national governments want to block particular Internet
 activities or content, or see what users are doing, they
 typically turn to the private companies that manage pieces of the
 Internet, including Internet Service Providers, search engines,
 email services, blogging and news portals, and even hardware

 As pressures to filter, censor, and monitor the Internet have
 mounted, some internet and communications technology (ICT)
 companies, academics, human rights activists, socially
 responsible investors, and civil society participants have held a
 series of conversations about how to respond. This event will tap
 project participants to have as candid a conversation as possible
 about the process in which they've engaged, and the role that
 corporations should play in response to government-mandated
 Internet censorship and surveillance, with particular but not
 exclusive emphasis on authoritarian regimes.
