AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION OF ILLINOIS v. ANITA ALVAREZ | No. 11-1286 | 7th Cir. April 22, 2011 | This Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press prepared this amicus brief (pdf) with support from the Cyberlaw Clinic. The brief was submitted to Seventh Circuit on behalf of American Society of News Editors, Association of Capitol Reporters and Editors, Citizen Media Law Project, National Press Photographers Association, Radio Television Digital News Association, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and Society of Professional Journalists. Amici challenged the Illinois Eavesdropping Act, arguing that it is so broad that it inhibits the basic right to gather information. The brief presented many of the arguments set forth in the Clinic’s Glik amicus brief, submitted to the First Circuit in January 2011.

Great to hear that SCOTUS has granted cert in the Oracle/Google case, re: copyright and APIs. The @cyberlawclinic submitted an amicus brief earlier this year on behalf of IP scholars supporting the petition for certiorari, focused on fair use issues. clinic.cyber.harvard.edu/2019…
The Clinic is hiring! We are especially interested in attorneys with social justice practices (inc practices that touch on race, gender, and economic issues) who have an interest in technology, even if they wouldn’t identify as tech lawyers. Details: brk.mn/1k5 pic.twitter.com/VL6W3r6TCB
