The 20th Annual Seattle Conference on Cutting Edge Issues in Technology and New Media Law

Dates: December 8 – 9, 2011
Location: Seattle, Washington

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Seattle Technology Law Conference. This compelling faculty updates you on recent events and provides clear and incisive analysis of new developments in technology, IP, and digital media law.

You will hear about new FTC regulations for Internet-based technologies and services; impacts of Privacy by Design as a matter of practice; crowdsourcing; the right to be forgotten; key developments in copyrights and meta-data flows; new NLRB regulations for social media; avatars, virtual identities, publicity and first amendment colliding with other related areas of the law.

You will appreciate hearing new trends in online contracting and cloud computing agreements, as well as patent and trademark litigation strategies and outcomes, IP antitrust issues and what dominant players and segments of the industry may be on the DOJ’s radar. An ethics session will focus on the emerging ethics practices in use of technology in multiple jurisdictions.

This is a particularly important year for technology and digital media. This annual gathering of leading regulatory, legal and business practitioners represents a uniquely selected faculty and collaboration on novel emerging topics.
