SOCIAL CINEMA: STORIES OF STRUGGLE & CHANGE
"TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY APPLY"
Marquee Theater, Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 7PM
You have clicked on them many times: “I agree to the Terms and Conditions of this web site.” But you never read them. By agreeing, you empower the surveillance state by giving the government data through corporations that it cannot get directly from you. "TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY APPLY" is a riveting exposé of corporate and government invasion of privacy – and what can be done about it.
Following the film, join Bruno Browning (Chief Information Officer, UW-Madison College of Letters and Sciences) for a discussion of the challenges posed by these developments.

“This quietly blistering documentary should rile even the most passive viewer.” Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
“The scariest movie I’ve seen this year, a horror tale that would have been science fiction had it been made in the 1990s.” G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
“The term “opting in” suggests a matter of choice. But as the thoughtful and spirited documentary “Terms and Conditions May Apply” makes chillingly clear, choices are few for netizens.” Sheri Linden, The Los Angeles Times
Co-sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild-UW, the ACLU of Wisconsin, and the American Constitution Society
