Security research has had some clear wins in the past year, but if you weren’t paying attention you may not have noticed. Amanda and Jen will walk through these and what they mean, from the DMCA exemptions, to fixing proposed legislation, to work killing bad bills. Policymakers have started recognizing a need to work with hackers, and vice-versa. It’s not going to get better until we understand the landscape and what’s worked. 

There will be guest speakers filling in details of their progress, and what's next.
