AUSTIN, Texas—“I see nuances that require more thought,” US District Judge Robert Pitman told the assembled attorneys and small crowd of onlookers (new Defense Distributed Director Paloma Heindorff included). “All presentations have been of great use, and these are fascinating and important issues.” Pitman, clearly, would not be making any rulings in Defense Distributed v. Grewal (PDF), a suit brought last summer by the 3D printed firearms company (and colleagues like the Second Amendment Foundation) against New Jersey State Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. But just as clearly, the judge appeared to recognize the fundamental and futuristic questions at play as the idea of free speech collides with the idea of digitally distributing CAD files for printing a firearm.Further Reading“Ghost guns,” underage sex, and the First Amendment: Defense Distributed’s legal saga This case largely hinges on a newly enacted state law, SB2465, aimed at … [Read more...] about “This isn’t like shipping wine”—Defense Distributed v.

Today, three shorter items to carry us into the weekend. One, Facebook has hired a new head of global policy and communications to replace Elliot Schrage. It’s Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom. Clegg is a former European Commission trade negotiator, where he played a role in punishing tech companies for anticompetitive behavior — most notably Google, which received a $5 billion fine for issues involving Android. With Facebook currently in the crosshairs of European regulators over a wide range of issues, Clegg brings a perspective and a clout that the company has previously lacked. British people have a proud tradition of loathing their elected leaders, and they eagerly traded zingers about Clegg on Friday morning, many of which are funny only if you have a solid grasp of British politics. (It helps to know that Clegg presided over a collapse in support for his party, the Liberal Democrats, and that the party abandoned a pledge to oppose … [Read more...] about Facebook hired a new public defender, and he should start with WhatsApp
It's hard to imagine a group less likely to have voted for Brexit than the people running London's tech start-ups.International, smart, metropolitan: London's tech entrepreneurs might be just those 'citizens of nowhere' who were criticised by Prime Minister Theresa May in a speech a few months after the UK voted to leave the EU. But they have also provided much of the energy behind the capital's tech start-up success story over the past few years. And many are now trying to figure out what to do next.About a third of London's tech workers are from beyond the UK, and around one in five is from the European Union (so many of them weren't eligible for a vote in the referendum anyway). Start-ups with teams made up of a dozen or more nationalities are common in the capital.Before the referendum in June 2016, a poll of the UK's tech executives found that 70 percent wanted to stay in Europe and only 15 percent said they wanted to leave. After the vote techUK, the industry group that conducted … [Read more...] about The Brexit dilemma: Will London’s start-ups stay or go?
