Workshop on IoT Liability at 33c3

After my recent blog post  on the dangers of liability for manufacturers of devices in the times of IoT, I decided I will run a workshop at 33C3, the annual hacker conference of the Chaos Computer club. I am proud I could convince Ulf Buermeyer (well known judge, expert in constitutional law, hacker, podcaster) to host this workshop with me.

The main motivation for me is that I hope that this will be a big issue in the coming year but it might still be early enough to influence policy before everybody commits herself to their favorite (snake oil) solution.

I have started collecting and sorting ideas in a Google document. Internet of things signed by the author
