Submissions may address a number of current topics in science and technology, such as the Location-based Video Game Protection Act, otherwise known as Pidgey’s Law, Kuwait’s requirement that all citizens and visitors provide DNA samples to promote security, and the Ninth Circuit decision that exempts AT&T from enforcement action by the Federal Trade Commission.
