You are cordially invited to a presentation by Stuart Karle, COO of Thomson Reuters on Monday, Oct. 29 at 12:00 p.m. in Room 122 of Yale Law School. The event is sponsored by the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression, and the Knight Law and Media Program. The title of his talk is "Both Sides of Hacking."
Abstract: Stuart will explore the impact on media of the hacking committed by the press in the UK, which has prompted a renewed examination of the press in the UK to protect privacy and further regulate the press, and the legal and reputational impact on the media’s publication of news on their own platforms, and how the media should respond.
