Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
The Honorable Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, will speak on "Electronic Privacy" in this headlining event at the Atlas Summit. The Summit will be held June 27-30, in Washington, D.C, at the Capital Hilton Hotel, located at 1001 16th Street Northwest.
Digital technology has liberated millions to express themselves more freely and trade more individually. But it also creates a growing pool of data full of personal details of what individuals have said and written, and what they have bought and sold. Who may access that data? What privacy do individuals really have? Kozinski, one of America's greatest pro-freedom jurists will examine the ways the government can obtain private information about individuals, and how citizens can help preserve themselves from government intrusion into their private lives.

We do this through a variety of programs, which include:
-Original scholarly research which further develops the philosophy.

-Publishing and commissioning influential books and monographs.
-Our rich multi-media website
-Original commentary and op-eds published in mainstream media.
