In just two weeks, my CCC colleagues and I will join legal counsel from around the globe when they meet up in Austin, Texas for the 2018 Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Annual Meeting. The conference is always a great opportunity to learn from and network with thousands of in-house lawyers on complex legal, regulatory, and business challenges.
I hope you can join us for our panel discussion #511: Managing Copyright Compliance in a Digital World on Tuesday, 23 October, 9:00 – 10:30 AM in Ballroom BC where my colleague Stephen Garfield, vice president, client engagement, will join Theodore Allen, senior director, intellectual property for Hologic, Inc., and Jeffrey Smith, associate director, contracts counsel for Shire, in exploring technology’s escalating impact on copyright infringement as well as the benefits technology can offer for managing compliance.
In addition to CCC’s session, here are a few other programs I’m looking forward to attending at the annual meeting:
GDPR’s First 100 Days: Lessons Learned – Monday, October 22, 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM
Regardless of industry, over the last several months, nearly all companies have been dealing with the rollout of the European Union’s enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation. This session will cover enforcement actions and explore changes companies may be making as a result. The speakers are encouraging participation from attendees so they can see where their company stacks up from a GDPR compliance perspective and develop a plan of action for handling changes in this evolving regulatory landscape.
Ethical and Legal Issues Posed by Artificial Intelligence – Monday, October 22, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
I’m looking forward to a dynamic discussion about the impact of artificial intelligence on existing ethical and legal frameworks. The session description promises recommendations for how in-house counsel can ensure they are supporting the use of AI to accomplish important business goals while ensuring they meet their ethical obligations.
Intellectual Property Protection for Emerging Technologies – Tuesday, October 23, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
This session promises to cover new and disruptive technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, 3-D printing, and virtual reality. It’s always exciting to hear how companies are handling game-changing innovation.
