Wyden lectures on Internet policy at law school

Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon visited the UO campus on April 11 to attend a meet­ing of the board of directors of the univer­sity’s Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics. While on campus, Wyden, who is a 1974 graduate of the UO law school and a member of the Morse Center’s board, of­fered a lecture to law students on technol­ogy and Internet policy. Wyden is consid­ered a pioneer in the field of Internet law most recently for his work in opposing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) (in the House) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). Last month, the Consumer Electronics Association recognized Senator Wyden as one of its 2012 Digital Patriots.
