How Scientology and Porn Shaped the Internet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do Tom Cruise and Kim Kardashian have in common? They have both sued for copyright infringement. Who would have thought a religion and porn would have added so much to the American jurisprudence? And who is open to talking about it in an in-depth and academic way? We are. Next time you watch porn or read Dianetics, make sure to thank the actors and religiously-devoted for shaping the modern internet! Our Founding Fathers never saw this coming when they wrote the Progress Clause.
