Digital Property Rights: Intel v. Hamdi


A disgruntled programmer sends email to thousands of his former colleagues at Intel with a litany of complaints about company policies.

When Intel asks him to cease all mass mailings, he refuses, and the company sues him for trespass. Are his digital messages physical invasions of the company's property? What is the greater injury -stifling free expression or allowing one man to clog an entire company's computer resources?

Join us for a debate between:

 Prof. Richard Epstein, University of Chicago Law School
