Lessig Blog, v2 On Tuesday, Berkeley City Council adopted unanimously an ordinance inspired by Councilman Max Anderson, and which I and Robert Post helped craft. I was very happy to bat cleanup in an effort that has been underway for years. But there’s some serious misunderstanding about the ordinance and its purpose. No doubt many of the people fighting for the ordinance have a firm belief that non-ionizing radiation presents a significant and underappreciated health risk. Those people believe this for different reasons. These are all people who believe there is a risk that is not yet acknowledged. I am not a scientist.

La Commission des questions juridiques et des droits de l'homme de l'Assemblée parlementaire du Conseil de l'Europe (APCE) a adopté un rapport en ce sens, intitulé "Sécurité nationale et accès à l'information". Le rapport ne nomme pas directement Edward Snowden, recherché par les Etats-Unis pour avoir divulgué des informations explosives sur les opérations américaines de surveillance électronique et qui a demandé l'asile politique à l'Equateur.
