In our previous class, we discussed the law and ethics of Facemash, a short-lived website Mark Zuckerberg created in the fall of ’03—a few months before he launched the beta version of Facebook.

In addition, we will also focus on the procedural side of law, in particular, due process and the burden of proof.
