From: CuD Moderators
Subject: File 1--CuD typos (6.21-"Rape in Cyperspace / 6.21-Newsday article)
In CuD 6.21, the moderators' note indicated that the Village Voice
"Rape in Cyberspace" "...may not be reprinted *WITH* the author's
This should have read: "...may not be reprinted *WITHOUT* the authors
permission." Readers who distribute CuDs should correct this typo
In CuD 6.19, we indicated in the CuD response to the Newsday article
(File 3) that in the '93 Congressional hearings on wire fraud one of
the participants judged 2600 Magazine to be a primer for crime. In an
inadvertant typo, the line appeared "which we" (ie, CuD), when the
line should have been "when *HE*" (the participant) considered 2600 to
be "dangerous." CuD does not consider 2600 "dangerous" or an advocacy
manual for crime.
We apologize for both errors and thank the readers who brought them to

"CYBERSPACE SUPERHIGHWAYS: ACCESS, ETHICS and CONTROL
Cyberspace, Information Superhighway, National Information
Infrastructure, Open Platforms, Computer and Communications
Revolution, Electronic Networks, Digital Data Bases and Information
Society are words and phrases common to the rhetoric of our modern
era. The relationships between and among individuals, society,
nations, government entities and business organizations are in
constant flux as new stresses and alliances change the old "rules
of the game." Today's challenges are to define what is the "game,"
who owns the "franchises," who can play, what are the rules and who
calls the shots. Information and communications technology raise
new issues for freedom and privacy in this new era. Such questions
are on the agenda as the participants in CFP'94 consider the
alternatives and seek some solutions. Come, join in the dialogue
that will help to shape the world's future!
On Wednesday March 23, the day before the formal conference begins,
CFP '94 is offering a number of in-depth tutorials covering a wide
variety of subjects on five parallel tracks. These presentations
will be interesting, educational, thought-provoking and often
controversial. The tutorials are available at a nominal additional
On each of the three days of the conference, a daily newspaper will
appear to highlight what has transpired and announce important
coming events. The staff of "The Decisive Utterance," The John
Marshall Law School's student newspaper, is providing this service.
CONFERENCE RECEPTION AND TECHNOLOGY DISPLAY
On Wednesday evening, from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., you are invited
to meet new and old friends and colleagues at an opening reception
at the John Marshall Law School from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. The School
is only two blocks from the conference hotel. A state-of-the-art
computer lab will be used to demonstrate high-tech applications in
academia and registrants will be invited to take part.
SINGLE-TRACK MAIN PROGRAM
The technological revolution that is driving change in our society
has many facets and we are often unaware of the way they all fit
together, especially those parts that lie outside one's own daily
experience. An important goal of CFP '94 is to bring together
individuals from disparate disciplines and backgrounds and engage
them in a balanced discussion of CFP issues. To this end our main
program, starting on Thursday, March 24, is on a single track
enabling registrants to attend all sessions. The concurrent Birds-
of-a-Feather meetings Thursday after 9:15 p.m. are exceptions.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER SESSIONS (BoF)
CFP '94 will provide a limited number of meeting rooms to
interested individuals for informal "Birds of a Feather" sessions
after the formal program Thursday, from 9:15 p.m. - 11:15 p.m.
These sessions will provide an opportunity for special-interest
discussions. For further information or to request a BoF contact
CFP '94 Program Coordinator, Gary Gassman, at the John Marshall Law
MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY GALA
Registrants are invited to a very special reception and buffet at
Chicago's famed Museum of Science and Industry where they also will
be treated to a private showing and demonstration of the MSI's
newly-opened Communications and Imaging Exhibits. These multi-
million dollar presentations occupy 15,000 sq.ft. of museum space
and required three years to develop. "Communications" is a
panoramic display of how technology has transformed our lives by
dissolving distance and and making connections; visitors can even
enter the unreal world of virtual reality. "Imaging" is a mind-
boggling journey through modern applications of imaging technology.
Visitors can even play the role of brain surgeon, using
radiosurgery made possible by 3-D imaging, or explore imaging in
forensic science by using MRI, fingerprint enhancement, face aging
and other modern technologies to solve a crime!
REGISTRATION WILL BE LIMITED
CFP '94 registration will be limited to 550 attendees, so we advise
you to register early to assure admission and to take advantage of
the early registration discounts.
MEALS AND RECEPTIONS
A key component of the CFP conferences has been the interaction
between the diverse communities that constitute our audience. To
promote this interaction CFP '94 provides three luncheons, three
receptions and three evening meals with the price of registration.
EFF PIONEER AWARDS
All conference attendees are invited to the EFF Pioneer Awards
Reception sponsored by the Electronic Frontier Foundation on
Thursday evening. These, the third annual EFF Pioneer Awards, will
be given to individuals and organizations that have made
distinguished contributions to the human and technological realms
touched by computer-based communications.
CONFERENCE BUSINESS OFFICE
The Conference business and registration office will be open from
8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Wednsday thru Friday, and until 6:00
p.m. on Saturday, for registration and general information.
NOTE: The following program content and schedule is subject to
change. The Information Superhighway is a fast track!
Wednesday, March 23, 1994
9:00 a.m. - noon
Cyberspace Law for Non-Lawyers
This tutorial presents an outline of the law for laymen,
dealing with Constitutional and legal issues that confront
those concerned with privacy, crime, and freedom of expression
in cyberspace. There will be summaries of recent cases,
legislative proposals and government activities.
Mike Godwin, Online Counsel, EFF
Rules of the Road for Network Travelers. (CLE Credit Approved)
The information superhighway presents a variety of rights and
risks. Learn about the legal issues of computer networks,
services and bulletin boards, including on-line property
rights; protecting personal privacy and business information;
electronic publishing and multimedia rights; viruses, adult
materials and other no-nos.
Lance Rose, Attorney and Author of "Syslaw."
Get Mad, Get Motivated, Get Moving!
The focus of this panel is on citizen action for privacy
protection: how to reach and organize constituents; support
legislation or other privacy protection measures; conduct
public education activities; use the technology in program
Robert Ellis Smith, Privacy Journal
Exploring Internet: A Guided Tour
This tutorial gives participants a practical introduction to
the most popular and powerful applications available via the
world's largest computer network, the Internet. There will be
hands-on demonstrations of communications tools such as e-
mail, conferencing, Internet Relay Chat and resource discover,
and navigations aids such as Gopher, WAIS, Archie and World
Wide Web. Extensive documentation will be provided.
Mark Graham, Pandora Systems
Using the Freedom of Information Act
The Federal FOIA is the principal focus of this tutorial
though some attention is given to the use of state FOIAs.
The session will cover procedures for making requests,
identifying the information desired, differences between
electronic and hard copy responses, and the appeals process
within agencies and the courts.
David Sobel, Counsel, Computer Professional for Social
2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Cryptography: What, and How?
Data encryption is in the cyberspace limelight as perhaps the
only technique to ensure digital privacy and security; it is
also the subject of sharp debate regarding control of the
development and use of the technology. This tutorial will
display what encryption is, how it works, and some of the
options for its use. Computer animations and graphic displays
will be used to help make cryptography comprehensible; the
audience will engage in some hands-on encryption exercises.
Mark Hellmann, Pattishall, McAuliffe et.al, Chicago
Electronic Detectives: Critical Issues for Public and Private
Both governmental and private sector investigators have
unprecedented access to "open" sources that were practically
inaccessible a few years ago. This information environment
poses opportunities and risks that will be the focus of this
program. Investigative techniques via networks will be
ed and the legal, ethical and practical issues will be explored.
Actual case-studies will be utilized.
Michael Moran, CCO; Michael Robertson, CFE
Hi-Tech Intellectual Property Law Primer (CLE Credit Approved)
This panel will cover the special problems in patent,
copyright and tradmark law engendered by computers and digital
technology, with attention to the impact of recent cases. The
differences in European protection will be surveyed as well as
technology export restrictions.
Raymond Nimmer, University of Texas Law School
Leslie A. Bertagnolli, Baker & McKenzie, Chicago
Transactional Data Analyses: Making FOI Access Useful
Electronic communication, coupled with federal and state
Freedom of Information Acts, has made a great deal of data
available to the public regarding the activities and policies
of government enforcement and regulatory agencies. Knowing
how to evaluate and use this information is critical to
understanding and demonstrating what the data really means.
The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of
Syracuse University uses its various knowledge-bases to
demonstrate the power of transactional data. Colorgraphics
and analytic techniques are combined in demonstrations of how
otherwise drab statistics can be displayed dramatically to aid
in policy analyses and advocacy.
David Burnham, former New York Times Investigative
Susan Long, Co-director, TRAC, SUNY-Syracuse
Election Fraud and Modern Technology
There has been increasing attention, in the U.S. and abroad,
to the use of modern technology in the electoral process.
Buying votes, stealing votes, changing votes -- whether in the
environment of punch-cards or fully automated voting machines
-- is the subject of this tutorial. Mock elections will be
staged in which the participants have roles in planning to
perpetrate as well as prevent vote fraud. Voter registration,
phone-based voting, cryptography and verification are among
the strategies and technologies to be considered.
Russel L. Brand, Reasoning Systems.

Speaker: U.S. Senator Paul Simon (Invited)
1:30 p.m. Is It Time for a U.S. Data Protection Agency?
Beginning with the Privacy Act of 1974, proposals to establish
an oversight body for data protection have been offered but
not adopted; another proposal is currently pending in
Congress. Against a background of almost twenty years
experience under the Privacy Act, the panel will consider
whether the current political, economic and technological
mileau favors establishment of a data protection agency.
Chair: Priscilla M. Regan, George Mason University
2:45 p.m. Break
3:00 p.m. "Owning and Operating the NII: Who, How, When?"

Chair: Robert R. Belair, Mullenholz & Brimsek, Wash., D.C.
10:30 a.m. Break
10:45 a.m. Can Market Mechanisms Protect Consumer Privacy?
When does protection of consumer privacy require legal
standards and government regulation and when can bargains and
agreements in the market suffice? What role do new
technological options for individuals and organizations play
in facilitating private choice and market transactions? Is
"ownership" of personal information a useful concept or a dead
end for privacy protection in an information age?
Chair: Dr. Alan F. Westin, Columbia University
Noon Lunch, Speaker: Philip Zimmerman, PGP
1:30 p.m. Creating an Ethical Community in Cyberspace
The fundamental ethical questions posed by the "settlement" of
cyberspace are not new. What is new is that the relationship

9:00 a.m. The Role of Libraries on the Information Superhighway
As the information landscape changes dramatically the historic
role of libraries as the "information commons" is challenged.
How will the Carnegie ideal of free, public access be
implemented by the library community? Should it be? This
panel will consider policy for an information network in the

Speaker: Simon Davies, Director General, Privacy
1:30 p.m. The Electronic Republic: Delivery of Government Services
over the Information Superhighway
State and local governments use computer networks to deliver
a wide range of services and information to the public;
electronic "kiosks" are moving to "government by ATM." How
will this interaction between government and the people affect
the process of American government in the future?
Chair: Dennis McKenna, Publisher, "Government Technology."

embedded within these systems -- a clash which has profound
implications for the future of both the network and the
Chair: Steven Hodas, NASA NREN Project
4:15 p.m. Guarding the Digital Persona

privacy from individual profiling and target marketing, and a
regime to legally recognize and protect an "electronic
personality" is put forth, Bruce Sterling will offer to
explain why much of that worry is misdirected!
