Suing AT&T for a trillion dollars while the President tries to stop you

The story of the EFF's lawsuit against AT&T for performing wiretaps on their main data fibers without warrants when asked by the NSA, and the subsequent lawsuit against White House officials when they managed to get congress to pass a law granting retroactive immunity to the phone companies.


  •   What we know went on inside AT&T
  •   What we suspect went on inside AT&T and other companies
  •   How the law was structured to prevent it
  •   How it failed
  •   How they tried to stop us with an act of congress
  •   How we hope to prevail anyway
  •   Ramifications for telecom policy, encryption and more

Speaker is chairman of the foundation which sued AT&T.
