Rick Falkvinge is the founder of the first Pirate Party and a strong advocate for next-generation civil liberties and sensible information policy. In particular, he stresses how the copyright industries work in collusion with Big Brother hawks to erode or eliminate the parts of Internet that guarantee our civil liberties. On this platform, one of privacy and digital rights, his party became the largest in the below-30 demographic in the 2009 European Elections. Foreign Policy magazine named Falkvinge one of the top 100 global thinkers of 2011, and recently he has been nominated as one of TIME's 100 most influential people of 2012.

At Black Hat Europe Falkvinge will deliver a keynote titled, Shelters or Windmills: The Struggle for Power and Information Advantage. During the discussion, he will orate on the militarization of information technology and focus on how the quest for power has always been primarily a struggle for the information advantage. Falkvinge will provide Black Hat audiences a blueprint for coming out on the winning side.

"These are momentous days for Internet governance. Rick Falkvinge is a living legend, one of the most important voices in copyright law, Internet sovereignty and information policy," said Trey Ford, Black Hat General Manager, "We are honored Rick is joining us in Amsterdam."
