Prof. Steven Schwinn on Chicago Public Media's 'The Morning Shift' after the 2012 Election

Posted November 9, 2012 by

Nov. 7 - WBEZ

"There were efforts to limit early voting in certain states; efforts to limit third party's abilities to register voters in Florida, that was overturned by the courts. I hope the lesson for both parties is that these kinds of cynical efforts to drive down the vote are not going to work in future elections. If we're going to look at electoral processes, with concern about integrity for the vote, we'll look honestly at the way we vote and try to bring new equipment, new opportunities, try to reduce the voting lines; do some things that are party neutral to enhance people's ability to vote, not depress people's vote."

Prof. Long Explores EU Privacy Laws That May Hinder Copyright Enforcement for U.S. Owners

Posted November 7, 2012 by

Oct. 26 - Chicago Daily Law Bulletin

Wiggle room still exists, but enforcement methods must be reconfigured to survive this latest challenge.
