Technology Law | Nov. 30 & Dec. 1, 2017 | Seattle

Over the years, this annual conference has followed IP and the  technology industry as it has evolved from computer law into the Internet, wireless communications, e-commerce, outsourcing, cloud services, social media, the Internet of Things, drones, and now the birth of commercial applications for 3D printing. The core legal issues have always involved patents, trademarks, copyrights, and protection of trade secrets. Over time they’ve expanded to include standards setting, open source software, data breaches, location tracking, big data, privacy by design, and Cybersecurity. Doing business via your website in Germany? You need to designate who will go to jail for violation of their privacy laws.
It’s a lot of moving pieces for technology companies, or companies heavily relying on digital technology, and their lawyers to put together. We’re happy to say that this conference, now in it’s 26th year, has stayed on top of the cutting edge issues that you will need to address.
Seattle is a big life sciences town with several well-funded medical research foundations promoting open access as a way for more rapidly finding solutions for critical health problems around the world. Like the open source software movement, which resulted in open source code finding it’s way into commercial applications, this will have ramifications beyond the medical research field. Our discussion of those issues will enable you gain the insights you will need to look into the future for impacts on other technology sectors.
