In our 272nd episode of The Cyberlaw Podcast, Stewart Baker interviews Harvey Rishikof, who, among other things, is a co-author of MITRE Corporation's "Deliver Uncompromised" report on supply chain security, and Joyce Corell, the Assistant Director for the Supply Chain and Cyber Directorate at the National Counterintelligence and Security Center. They are joined by Matthew Heiman, Gus Hurwitz (@GusHurwitz), and Nate Jones (@n8jones81) to discuss:
- The Second Circuit ruled that President Trump cannot block critics on Twitter. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez was sued on that basis on the same day as the court's ruling.
- Marriott and British Airways were hit hard by GDPR fines in the United Kingdom.
- FTC is apparently hitting Facebook with a $5 billion fine.
- Congress has banned Chinese surveillance cameras, but removing them is going to be difficult.
- The US Patent and Trademark Office has petitioned the Supreme Court to overrule precedent that adding ".com" to a generic term makes it trademarkable.
- France has adopted a 3% digital tax, the UK wants to do similar, and the US is not happy.

- And more!
