My Expert Witness Report quoted in FCC filing by EFF

I've just found that there is an on-line reference for an EFF filing to the FCC which quotes my expert witness work:


Before the Federal Communications Commission Washington, D.C. 20554

In the Matter of

WC Docket No. 04-36 IP-Enabled Services

I'm on page 7, as footnote 17 (URLs added):

A tangle of local regulations may also lead to a wasteful and privacy-undermining effort by service providers and even publishers to determine the physical locations of all Internet users. [footnote 17]

[17] See Expert Witness Report of Seth Finkelstein, Barbara Nitke et al. v. John Ashcroft, 01 Civ. 11476 (RMB), S.D.N.Y., available at http://sethf.com/nitke/ashcroft.php (noting limitations and expense of geolocation technology; distinguishing "co-operative" from "oppositional" geolocation).

I'm an authority! :-)
