Child-pornography laws are so expansive that they criminalize not just actions, but thoughts and fantasies.

Affiliate Scholar Scott Shackelford for The Christian Science Monitor Passcode:

Forget about Safe Harbor. Modernize global privacy law instead.

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Passcode/Passcode-Voices/2016/0127/Opinion-Forget-about-Safe-Harbor.-Modernize-global-privacy-law-instead

A small, self-governing island may hand over its roads to self-driving cars. Affiliate Scholar Bryant Walker Smith weighs in.

“One of the public misconceptions about this field is that a state that passed a law on autonomous driving must be ahead. It must be signaling it’s friendly for this kind of development,” Smith said. “That has not been the case.”

Depending on who you ask, it's either the perfect testing site, or a terrible one.

CIS is a leader in the study of the law and policy around the Internet and other emerging technologies.
Introduction
Founded in 2000 by Lawrence LEssig, the Center for Internet and Society (CIS) is a public interest technology law and policy program at Stanford Law School and a part of Law, Science and Technology Program at Stanford Law School. CIS brings together scholars, academics, legislators, students, programmers, security researchers, and scientists to study the interaction of new technologies and the law and to examine how the synergy between the two can either promote or harm public goods like free speech, innovation, privacy, public commons, diversity, and scientific inquiry. CIS strives to improve both technology and law, encouraging decision makers to design both as a means to further democratic values. CIS provides law students and the general public with educational resources and analyses of policy issues arising at the intersection of law, technology and the public interest. Through the Fair Use Project and the Cyberlaw Clinic, CIS also provides legal representation to clients in matters that raise important issues of free expression, civil rights and technology. CIS also sponsors a range of public events including a speakers series, conferences and workshops.
