First Amendment News 281: Clearview face-recognition controversy continues — privacy v. free speech

First Amendment News 281: Clearview face-recognition controversy continues — privacy v. free speechLast August we posted a story titled “Floyd Abrams’ march into postmodernity — facial recognition and the First Amendment.” That post began by quoting from a New York Times article: Clearview AI has hired Floyd Abrams, a top lawyer, to help fight claims that selling its data to law enforcement agencies violates privacy laws. . . . Litigation against the start-up “has the potential of leading to a major decision about the interrelationship between privacy claims and First Amendment defenses in the 21st century,” Mr. Abrams said in a phone interview. He said the underlying legal questions could one day reach the Supreme Court. At the time of that post, Mr. Abrams told FAN that there “are t...

In this entry, we’ll explore some common critiques of the Chicago State...

House Resolution calls for global abolishment of blasphemy laws; U.S. colleges with overseas campuses should take note

House Resolution calls for global abolishment of blasphemy laws; U.S. colleges with overseas campuses should take noteHouse Resolution 512, sponsored by Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, passed the House of Representatives overwhelmingly on Monday with a vote of 386-3. The resolution calls “for the global repeal of blasphemy, heresy, and apostasy laws.” These laws operate in dozens of countries and tend to punish religious minorities, non-believers, and secularists. This is a vital issue for human rights defenders around the world, and one that is relevant to American higher education as well.  The resolution urges countries to abolish their blasphemy and apostasy laws and ensure the freedom and safety of those imprisoned under such laws. According to the resolution, “many countries continu...
