The Cloud: Emerging Issues in Business and Intellectual Property Law

The symposium will examine the legal issues that arise when attorneys and their clients decide to use the cloud. The program aims to demystify the cloud with a basic explanation about how the cloud works. Academics, practicing attorneys and technology experts will speak to the advantages and legal drawbacks of storing information in the cloud. Presenters will address the legal issues and concerns regarding security, privacy and the protection of intellectual property rights. Attendees will learn about the risks that should be evaluated before using the cloud, how to control these risks, and how cloud usage could result in tax liabilities.
