Fab academo-geek conference alert: GikII, 19th September 07 in London.

“[last year saw] the first workshop in the world where the worlds of law, technology and popular culture came together. We want to discuss whether geek law exists; by the end of the workshop we had created it. Topics covered at the first workshop included surveillance strategies in the novels of Harry Potter; how to avoid building open source killer robots; whether we need a new legal regime for the regulation of virtual property; copyright law, anime, fansubs; comparative pornography law, TRIPS and Japanese manga; virtual world governance; the law of entropy and old computers; technophobia and technophilia; and much much more.”

Papers and Powerpoints from last year’s conference are here.
