Saturday, March 8 / 9:30AM - 10:30AM - Panelists:
Panelists will discuss Barrett Brown, Texan and journalist facing 105 years in jail for hyperlinking. This case is so explosive that a media gag order is in effect. We discuss how Brown’s case is linked to that of Jeremy Hammond hacktivist and revolutionary sentenced to 10 years for hacking Stratfor, a Texas intelligence contractor and to that of Weev, the hacker who didn’t hack AT&T. He is is doing 41 months in federal prison for what those in the tech community consider a non-crime.
The focus is on how the cases impact the future of online liberty, the criminalization of dissent and the suspension of the rule of law.
