Ralph talks to Columbia Law Professor and software expert, Eben Moglen, about the recent VW scandal and how computer software in cars and voting machines is ripe for mischief and accidents. And Paul Hudson, president of Flyers Rights tells us how we can fight bad airline service.
Eben Moglen is a professor of law and legal history at Columbia University and is the founder, Director-Counsel and Chairman of the Software Freedom Law Center, whose client list includes numerous pro bono clients, such as the Free Software Foundation.
Paul Hudson has been a ground breaking public interest advocate for over 30 years: In the 1970s in energy and utility policy, in the 1980s for crime victim rights, in the 1990s to 2012 for air travelers and terrorist victims. From 2001 to 2013, he represented victims of lengthy tarmac confinements in a series of court cases, which eventually lead to the formation of Flyers Rights, the largest non-profit organization representing airline passengers.
