The Internet of Things: Legal Risks in a Connected World


The Internet of Things: Legal Risks in a Connected World

Wednesday, August 31, 2016, 1:00 P.M. CST -- Join Richard Martinez, Partner and Chair of the Privacy and Cyber Security Litigation Group; Kerry Childe, Sr. Corporate Counsel, Privacy and Information Policy, Best Buy; and Ari Lukoff, Associate, Intellectual Property and Technology Group as they survey the latest technology and legal issues surrounding the IoT.

The buzz surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT) has grown in intensity for several years. The technology is being adopted by consumers, and it is already generating real profits for early entrants. The IoT promises disruptive technologies that will lead to more connected lives. But technology can move faster than the law, and the IoT is currently governed for the most part by new applications of existing, pre-IoT laws, which has led to increased regulatory and legislative scrutiny. The future will almost inevitably lead to disputes in our courts and administrative agencies. This webinar offers a survey of the legal issues surrounding the latest IoT technology and recommendations on how to stay ahead of this legal tidal wave. CLE credit application in process.
