Palmer Center Hosts Eighth Annual Technology Conference
The Geoffrey H. Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law at Pepperdine University will host the Eighth Annual Technology Conference on Friday, Mar. 30, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The conference, which will take place in the Westside Conference Center at the West Los Angeles Graduate Campus, will gather some of the country's leading in-house and outside counsel for a conference on the issues posed by user submitted/generated Web sites such as MySpace and YouTube. Recent cases such as Atlantic Records v. XM Satellite Radio, Medimmune v. Genentech, and others have illustrated that the technology industry is rapidly changing, causing new legal challenges to emerge.
The informative and fast-paced series of discussions include advanced technology licensing, bankruptcy code issues, Atlantic Records v. XM Satellite Radio and Medimmune v. Genentech, copyright and the Internet, (including discussion of YouTube, MySpace, and other websites hosting user submitted/generated content), trademarks on the Internet, search engines, and cybersquatting.
The conference is hosted by the Palmer Center in conjunction with the Association of Corporate Counsel Information Technology and eCommerce Committee and ACC's Southern California Chapter.
