Richard Stallman just passed this along to me.  I won't be around,
since I'll be in New York for LinuxWorld, but someone else might
want to organize a group of freedom-loving people to go and hand
out some anti-DMCA flyers, ask good questions, and so on.

"How can you enforce laws that ban Academic Freedom in computer
science and then walk into a university and ask for help?"

Remember, protests and demonstrations are GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH.


                 4:15PM, Wednesday, Jan 22, 2003

Topic:    Solving High Technology Crime
          Academic Partnership in Crime Fighting

          United States Postal Inspector
          San Francisco Electronic Crimes Task Force

About the talk:

The San Francisco Electronic Crimes Task Force seeks to engage
the academic community to help us address the technology crimes
affecting our community, our corporate partners and law
enforcement. The crimes affecting our corporate partners include
computer hacking, intellectual property crimes (criminal
trademark and copyright infringement) and identity theft. These
crimes are costing the high technology community billions of
dollars and stunting the acceptance and growth of these
technologies to support our economy. Antiquated investigative
methods and poor individual accountability for Internet
communications are some of the greatest challenges facing law
enforcement. The solution to some of these challenges may lie
within the academic community.

The talk will focus on several brief case studies relating our
greatest challenges in fighting high technology crime. Each case
study will be presented by a law enforcement agent and/or
corporate partner of the task force.

About the speaker:

The San Francisco Electronic Crimes Task Force is a group of
Federal, state, local investigators and corporate partners, lead
by the U.S. Secret Service, focused on attacking high technology
crime affecting Bay Area companies, locally and globally. The
task force is part of the Secret Service's nation-wide network of
electronic crimes task forces, see http://www.ectaskforce.org[2].
