Episode 60 of the Cyberlaw Podcast features Paul Rosenzweig, founder of Red Branch Consulting PLLC and Senior Advisor to The Chertoff Group. Most importantly he was a superb Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy in the Department of Homeland Security when I was Assistant Secretary.
Paul discourses on the latest developments in ICANN, almost persuading me that I should find them interesting. He expresses skepticism about the US government’s effort to win WTO scrutiny of China’s indigenous bank technology rules; he also sees the DDOS attack on GitHub as a cheap exercise in Chinese extraterritorial censorship.
Michael Vatis, meanwhile, fills us in on two new cyberlaw cases whose importance is only outweighed by their weirdness. And I dissect the House cybersecurity information sharing bill, concluding that it has gone so far to appease the unappeasable privacy lobby that it may actually discourage information sharing.
