Technology & the Balance between Freedom of Expression & Privacy
Mozilla Portland Office

Join us for an exciting talk & discussion with ALCU Board Member, Stuart Kaplan!

How technology changes the relationship between freedom of expression and privacy

Technology complicates the relationship between free speech and personal privacy. At two extremes of privacy, anonymous online posts permit defamation without consequences to the writer, while ubiquitous video surveillance of public spaces limits freedom of assembly and movement.

This presentation will examine several recent attempts to find a fair and workable balance between privacy protection and free speech goals by the courts and legislatures. Particular attention will be given to the work of the American Civil Liberties Union to craft policies that address the many challenges to privacy and speech rights presented by a variety of technologies.

Speaker Bio

Stuart Kaplan is Professor Emeritus of Communication, Lewis & Clark College. He has served on the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon Board of Directors since 1992 and has held the positions of Board President and Oregon representative to the National ACLU Board.
