The murky legality of doxxing in the USA

The internet is full of trolls. This is nothing new. However, the tactics used by trolls can go way further than stupid comments on YouTube, and doxxing is an example of this.

If you are not familiar with the term doxxing, it is the publishing of private or identifying information, such as a home or work address, about a particular individual on the Internet, typically with malicious intent. While this might sound outright illegal, as it stands the law surrounding doxxing is limited and vague.

To get a better understanding of where the US law stands on this issue, what the future of doxxing might look like, and how you should respond if you are a victim, we are joined by Joseph Hoelscher, a criminal defense attorney and Managing Attorney of a Texas law firm, Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda PLLC, who has worked on multiple doxxing cases in the past, from both sides, as clients who were charged with online harassment and with clients who were the victims of doxxing.

And for our side piece today, we have Computer Says LOL, where we have a stand-up comedy bit from Don McMillan, a technology engineer turned stand up comedian.
