CITP Luncheon Speaker Series: Jonathon Penney – Chilling Effects: How Laws and Surveillance Impact Us Online

Through discussion of surveillance/regulatory related empirical case studies, including one on involving Wikipedia traffic and another “comparative” survey-based study, Jon will offer insights on these and other questions: What is the nature and scale of regulatory and surveillance chilling effects online? Do they persist or are they merely temporary? What factors may influence their impact?
