Chicago Law has made media available from a conference organized by Martha Nussbaum and Cass Sunstein entitled “Speech, Privacy, and the Internet: The University and Beyond.” Video of Lawrence Lessig’s keynote speech appears below:

An aside: Whatever Lessig’s impact on our legal thinking, which is considerable – does he not also deserve a hallowed place in the pantheon of powerpoint presenting? This is another example of clear, lucid, thought-provoking communication equally dependent on the visual and audio elements. Simply powerful – but I digress.

A description of conference appears below:

The current rise in invasive personal gossip, much of it anonymous and much of it directed at students, often by other students, creates an atmosphere that threatens to disrupt the climate of instruction. On the other hand, restrictions on such internet sites raise delicate free speech issues. What challenges do these developments raise on campus, and what direction should universities take to meet these challenges?
