A short list of the hypocrisy disguised as “human right protection” that floods the Internet:
- Privacy is a fundamental right,
- Weapons are evil,
- Web giants too are evil,
- We must fight to stop climate change,
- I work for the “enemy” not because of the fees, but because I will make him a better self,
- I don’t do it for money, but for “the Principle”,
- Trust me, even if it is gratis,
- China is dangerous,
- Exchange ideas is better than being paid with money
Actually I don’t understand why the Ariana Grande’s lamentation about a photographer to claim copyright over a photo he took of her should be either an issue or a news. A photographer is the sole owner of the pictures he takes, and if the portrayed person wants to use is it he must pay for that (remember the day of your wedding, and the fact that the photographer did not give you the film or the RAW files? This is why.) That’s the basis of the right of author law.
The news is gaining momentum: Osumane Bah, a student that has been charged of multiple theft in Apple stores located in several cities of the United States, filed a suit against the Cupertino-based company seeking for a compensation of one billion USD for having been wrongly identified by Apple as the author of these crimes. The decisive evidence that lead to his involvement in the investigations, this is Mr. Bah’s basis of the claim, is that he has been wrongly identified by a facial recognition system operated either by Apple or a security company hired for the job.

Part 1. Technological public order and information security
Part 2. Public security and information technology
The pervasiveness of information technologies has repercussions not solely in terms of judicial activity, but also affects the management of public order – and therefore the exercise of powers attributed to the Ministry of the Interior in different areas and before the Judiciary intervention.
A modern notion of public order must necessarily take into account the issue of information security as its own constitutive element.
This seminar describes, starting from the analysis of the Consolidated Law on public security, the structure of the public security authority, and defines roles and powers and analyses the way in which this structure deals with the subjects of the information society.
In particular, it highlights the possible interactions between the State Police, Internet providers and platform operators Over the top.
Participation is free, however registration is required on Eventbrite by searching “Public security, powers of the public security authority and information technology”.
