IEEE ComSoc SCV Talk: “Engineers’ Role in Internet Law Development”
By Eric Goldman
Last week, I gave a talk at a meeting of the IEEE Communications Society, Santa Clara Valley chapter. I don’t often get the chance to speak to a group of engineers, so I decided to go in a little different direction than my normal talks. I gave a procedure-oriented talk about how lawyers and engineers can work together to improve legal compliance. Along the way, I pointed to the Roommates.com and Cablevision cases as two case studies of how product design choices can influence the legal analysis (one good, one bad). My talk slides.
