Intermediaries like ISPs, hosting providers, and social networks are
global chokepoints for censorship and tempting honeypots for government
surveillance. How can activists successfully prevent these private
actors from bowing to demands to restrict user content and hand over
personal data?

Enter the Manila Principles on Intermediary Liability: a new initiative
led by digital rights groups around the world to set clear standards on
states and companies to protect free speech, the right of association,
the right to privacy and due process.

EFF's Jeremy Malcolm will join TA3M to talk about how the Principles
were created, how diminishing intermediary liability affects the open
Net, and how establishing new norms can protect small and innovative
intermediaries, from blog with comments to decentralized mesh networks.

Date: April 20
Time: 6:00pm
Location: EFF offices, 815 Eddy Street, San Francisco
