Event Details

The ways in which the Internet is used to disseminate and promote hateful and violent beliefs and attitudes are astounding, varied, and continually multiplying.  Rapidly changing technology, First Amendment protections for legitimate speech, and the elusive intersection between public and private realms in cyberspace pose innumerable obstacles for containing on-line hate speech. 

This panel of practitioners, scholars, Internet service providers, and regulators, featuring Christopher Wolf, national chair of the ADL’s Civil Rights Committee and co-author of Viral Hate: Containing Its Spread on the Internet, and moderated by Suffolk Law Professor and constitutional scholar Robert Smith, will discuss what individuals, businesses, and government can do to prevent the spread of hate on the Internet.

 

Panelists:

Jonathan M. Albano,  Media Attorney, Bingham McCutchen, LLP

Linda Hamel, General Counsel, Information Technology Division, Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Robert Trestan, New England Regional Director, Former Cyberhate Project Director, ADL

Christopher Wolf, Co-Author, Viral Hate: Containing Its Spread on the Internet, Chair, ADL National Civil Rights Committee and Partner, Hogan Lovells US LLP

Moderated by:

Robert H. Smith,  Professor of Law, Suffolk University Law School


Viral Hate: Containing Its Spread on the Internet will be on sale and co-author Christopher Wolf will be available for book signings following the event.
