TALK: Monday 10-28-13 NSA Mass Surveillance: Turning the Fourth (and First) Amendment on It's Head
EFF's Legal Director will walk us through the NSA Mass Surveillance that has been now confirmed by the government in light of the revelations of Edward Snowden. She'll discuss the history of the spying revelations, up to and including the recent revelations, review the legal challenges that EFF and others have been mounting since 2006. She'll discuss the government's changing legal justifications for the spying and its claims of oversight by the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government and the Constitutional implications of mass surveillance. Finally, she'll walk through what EFF and others are doing to try to bring the rule of law back to the NSA and what the implications are for all Americans, especially those who seek to develop and sell technologies.
