What are you really agreeing to when you click "I accept?"  "Terms and Conditions May Apply" explores that question, revealing how user agreements for "free" services allow private corporations and governments to track your online presence and learn about your interests, your family and friends, and even your future behavior.  The film demonstrates how we have incrementally opted-in to a real-time surveillance state, and what--if anything--we can do about it.

Dr. Zeynep Tufekci, assistant professor at UNC's School of Information and Library Science (SILS), is featured in the documentary and will be in attendance to field questions during the latter part of the hour.  The first half of the film will screened during the lunch hour.  For those interested in viewing the film in its entirety, the latter half will be screened at 6:00PM in Room 4085 (snacks will be served). 

This event is co-sponsored by Carolina Law ACLU, UNC Media Law Society, and the UNC Center for Media Law & Policy.
