This seminar will consider some of the issues defining the relationship between our constitutional order and the technological revolution through which we are living. Among the problems we will discuss are: encryption and communications privacy in relation to law enforcement and government intelligence gathering, the constitutional basis of "intellectual property" in the context of novel technological structures, the "new media" and the First Amendment, and constitutional sexual privacy in cyberspace. Some familiarity with the basic technology of the network, including use of a web browser, will be necessary in order to participate effectively.
