Law + tech news round-up

How is it March already?  … if you missed last month’s Australian Digital Alliance’s copyright forum you can now catch up online.

The first public hearing for the inquiry into Centrelink’s automated debt collection processes is being held this Wednesday 8 March; Daniel Solove recently reflected on the 10 years since his excellent ‘I’ve got nothing to hide’ essay. Stilgherrian reported on talk of cyberwar, while a man in Sydney was charged with manufacture of 3D printed guns.  And Nicolas Suzor ponders the question of whether Twitter should dump the US President?  That’s just some of the (relatively) recent law + tech news.   Happy reading.
