EFF Debate: "Email - Should the Sender Pay?"
Esther Dyson and Danny O'Brien Face Off April 20 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO - April 17 - What is the future of email? Should anyone ever have to pay to send it? Or would payments undermine free speech on the Internet? These are just a few of the questions raised recently by AOL's controversial plans to adopt a "certified" email system.

EFF's Activism Coordinator Danny O'Brien and tech expert Esther Dyson will face off over the question "Email - Should the Sender Pay?" Entrepreneur and EFF co-founder Mitch Kapor will moderate.
