London Privacy Lab - October 2016 - UK IP Bill Update and OffGrid
On Wednesday, 26 October, we invite you to join us for a lively discussion of the UK IP Bill, the Digital Economy Bill and recent events.
Renate Samson from Big Brother Watch, Caroline Wilson Palow from Privacy International, Jim Killock from Open Rights Group and Chris Jeffery from Taylor Wessing will be joining us for an informal panel-like discussion, similar to the one we hosted in June.
In addition, the makers of OffGrid, the privacy game will be joining us. They will demo the build of the game for attendees to play and give a short talk that covers an intro to the game and how the modding capabilities allow players to make content, levels, and tell stories within the game that can cover subject matter like the IP bill (e.g. a level where the player has to get into a government office and find a civil servant's laptop to switch out the IP bill for a more reasonable piece of legislation!), and how they can markup messages and conversations in the game the explain or explore such issues.
Who should attend: If you enjoy talking privacy - so much so that it's related to what you do for a living or how you volunteer your time - this is the event for you.
Privacy Lab brings together people who work in the privacy space from different perspectives - people who may not regularly talk to each other - policy people, techies, activists, and academics at big companies, startups, universities, libraries, NGO's, foundations, civil society and more - that's one of the benefits of attending. Usually, you'll have about an hour on the topic followed by about an hour to talk to each other individually, but since this is more of a group discussion format we may spend more time on the speakers and Q&A.
