Public Knowledge Senior Vice President Harold Feld will be speaking at this November 19, 2013 event:
The tragic suicide of Internet activist Aaron Swartz in the fall of 2012 drew public attention to the ethical problems that arise from the protection—or overprotection--of intellectual property. Does information really want to be free, as the saying goes?
And what can we learn from Jewish tradition--from the Talmud to more modern interpretations -- about creating a fair balance between the intellectual property rights of writers and other artists and access to copyrighted media in the United States?

Public Knowledge President Gigi B. Sohn will be speaking at this October 29, 2013 event:
Location: Washington, DC
Right now the NSA is spying on everyone's personal communications, and they’re operating without any meaningful oversight. Since the Snowden leaks started, more than 569,000 people from all walks of life have signed the StopWatching.us petition telling the U.S. Congress that we want them to rein in the NSA.
On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the US Patriot Act, we're taking the next step and holding the largest rally yet against NSA surveillance. We’ll be handing the half-million petitions to Congress to remind them that they work for us -- and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer.
