歡迎辭

在這課程,我們將考慮與互聯網和萬維網相關的政策與科技之間的互動,以及爲了控制網絡的爭奪。 主題包括:知識産權和著作權管制,隱私和政府監視,以及表達意見的自由與內容監控。
完整主題列表參見教學時程

麻省理工學院6系列課程的學生,可以把這課程作爲理學士或工程碩士課程要求的常規工程學濃縮課題之一,或可以用于人文、藝術和社會科學(HASS)的選修學分(兩者選擇其一)。 希望獲得工程學濃縮課程學分的學生可註册6.806號課程,而希望獲得HASS學分的學生則可程册6.805號或STS.085號課程。

畢業學分可以以STS.085課程獲得(而非6系列課程),但這要求額外功課的特別安排。

每周一次,我們與哈佛法學院「互聯網與社會:技術與政治控制」聯席上課。

General Information for Ethics and Law on the Electronic Frontier

Class Meetings:
每週2節
每節1.5小時

Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, MIT.

Joe Pato
Chief Technology Officer, Internet Security Solutions Division, Hewlett-Packard.

Welcome

In this class, we will consider the interaction between policy and technology as it relates to the Internet and the World Wide Web, and the evolving fights for control of the internet. Topics include: intellectual property and copyright control, privacy and government surveillance, and freedom of expression and content control. See the course calendar for the complete list of topics.

MIT course 6 students may count this subject as one of the general engineering concentration subjects required for the S.B. or M. Eng. programs, or use this subject for HASS elective credit (but not both). Students wishing engineering concentration credit should enroll under the subject number 6.806, and students wishing HASS credit should enroll under either of the numbers 6.805 or STS.085.

Graduate credit can be granted under the STS.085 number (not the course 6 numbers), although this will require making special arrangements for extra work.

Once a week, we will be meeting jointly with the Harvard Law School class, Internet and Society: The Technologies and Politics of Control.



Readings

The class will have many readings, mostly short. Most of these are linked off the readings section. In addition read the book, The Future of Ideas, by Larry Lessig (Random House, 2001).

Laptop Computers

If you have laptop computer with an ethernet port, you should bring it (and a cable) to class, both at MIT and Harvard. If you don't have a laptop, don't worry -- this is not required.

Grading and Required Work

Grades will be based on:
  • Short Writing Assignments (30%): There will be weekly short writing assignments. Many of these will be done in conjunction with the Harvard students, the assignments will include commenting on other students' papers in addition to writing your own papers.
  • Term Project (30%): You will be required to do a term project, leading to a final paper. You can make this an individual project, or work in a group of two or three. The project can be purely a research paper, or it can involve design and implementation (but this still requires a paper). Papers may be selected for inclusion in the class archive of student papers on the Web.
  • Oral Presentation (10%): At least once during the semester, you will be required to make an oral presentation on an assigned topic, or on your project, and you will be asked to help lead the class discussion.
  • Midterm Exam (20%): There will be an in-class midterm exam in week 7.
  • Final Exam (0%): There is no final exam.
