Identities, the Internet & the Law
Online, individuals have the opportunity to appear both as themselves and as others. Should the law also change in response to this unprecedented ability of individuals to define and change their identity? If so, how should it change? Please join us for a discussion of the challenging issues posed at this intersection of law & technology.
