UK quietly ditches porn age checks in favor of wider online harms rules

A controversial UK government scheme to introduce mandatary age checks for accessing online pornography has been dropped — for now. Introduction of the measure, which was intended to protect children from accessing inappropriate content online, had already been delayed by several months this year, most recently after a bureaucratic oversight. The technical and regulatory challenges of introducing age verification across adult websites has attracted much criticism, including from privacy campaign...

Outer space capitalism: The legal and technical challenges facing the private space industry

The Outer Space Treaty, which was signed in 1967, is the basis of international space law. Its regulations set out what nations can and cannot do, in terms of colonization and enterprise in space. One major stipulation of the treaty is that no nation can individually claim or colonize any part of the universe—when the US planted a flag on the Moon in 1969, it took great pains to ensure the world it was symbolic, not an act of claiming territory.Essentially to do anything in space, as a private e...

Top Myths About Content Moderation

How Internet companies decide which user-submitted content to keep and which to remove—a process called “content moderation”—is getting lots of attention lately, for good reason. Under-moderation can lead to major social problems, like foreign agents manipulating our elections. Over-moderation can suppress socially beneficial content, like negative but true reviews by consumers. Due to these high stakes, regulators across the globe increasingly seek to tell Internet companies how to moderate con...

Moore’s Law Is DEAD. RIP.

Intel has put the brakes on Moore’s Law. And a technology roadmap for Moore’s Law maintained by an industry group, including the world’s largest chip makers, is being scrapped. Whatever kind of computer you’re interested in, the key question is whether the creative avenues left open to computing companies can provide similar payoffs to Moore’s Law after it ends, says Neil Thompson, an assistant professor at MIT Sloan School. “We know that those other things matter, but the question is, are they...

What do Hong Kong protests have to do with you? Plenty

If you think Hong Kong demonstrators demanding their freedoms doesn’t have anything to do with you, think again. From Chinese students in Southern California, to tourists, to American diplomats and investors, what matters in the former British colony matters here. Just ask the heads of Activision Blizzard, Apple and the NBA, all of whom this month immediately kowtowed to China when the government made clear it was upset with those organizations over what Beijing considered meddling in Hong Kong’...

New Paper Explains Why Technologists Should Rally Behind Section 230

At the request of James Grimmelmann, and with his editorial support, I wrote an essay for the Communications of the ACM called “Internet Immunity and the Freedom to Code.” The abstract: The Internet’s freedom to code is in jeopardy. In 1996, Congress enacted 47 U.S.C. § 230, which says Internet services aren’t liable for third-party content in many cases. In practice, for over two decades, Section 230 has legally immunized coders’ decisions about how to gather, organize, and publish third par...

Bruce Schneier makes the case for "public interest technologists"

Law school grads routinely go to work for crusading nonprofits and even those in private practice do pro bono work, thanks to a widespread understanding that lawyers have a professional duty to work for the public interest -- after all, understanding and navigating the law is a necessary precondition for freedom and fairness. Technology is another form of law, and a failure to understand tech can get us into real problems, especially at the policy level, where politicians' failures to come ...
