Copyright, Interfaces, and Implications of Oracle v. Google (Jun 2019)

Although the monumental Oracle v. Google litigation continues, the Federal Circuit's 2014 ruling on the copyrightability of interfaces has already upset previous understandings that underpin the software industry. Rather than revisit the complex details of the Oracle v. Google litigation, this session will review trends in copyright litigation relating to software interfaces, suggest practical tips for advising clients, and guess at where the next battlefields may emerge.

The TCPA: Still “Crazy” After All These (Seven) Years (Jun 2019)

The Texas Citizen’s Participation Act (TCPA) is the latest mechanism that is being used to dismiss all kinds of lawsuits, including cases involving theft of trade secrets and violations of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.  And, these dismissals often come with a hefty attorneys’ fee award for the other side. Discuss the background of the TCPA, review recent caselaw developments in both state and federal courts, and consider the TCPA’s impact on commercial litigation in the future.

Cybersecurity Compliance Trends in 2019 - Why be concerned? (Jun 2019)

Over the last six months and into the next six months of this current Congress, there has been an increase in federal and state legislative activity surrounding consumer data privacy and protection. Meanwhile, the FTC has been busy in the background, testifying before house and senate subcommittees, to ask for more enforcement authority and the right to impose civil penalties. Whether all 50 states enact a consumer data privacy law or whether the federal government does so - and preempts them all - ultimately the FTC will likely remain the primary enforcement agency.  Learn, from experts, about some basic steps that all in-house counsel can start taking to make their compliance program ready. Also discuss the most pressing developments from the perspective of legal risk and how to mitigate it. And, you will learn key takeaways for how to operationalize the new requirements to meet business objectives.
