Eric Goldman Road Show Spring 2009

By Eric Goldman

As usual at this point in the semester, I’m still scheduling events for the semester, but this post enumerates some of the events I have calendared so far. Some of these are High Tech Law Institute events, so we’ll be disseminating more information about those as it comes available. As usual, if I’m going to be in your area or if we are going to be at the same conference, please let me know! If I’m speaking, my topic is in parenthesis after the event.

Jan. 13 (TONIGHT!), Sacramento: Navigating the Hazards of Cyberspace, Sacramento County Bar Association Intellectual Property Law Section (47 USC 230). This is a free event, so if you’re in the area, please come!

Jan. 28, SCU: HTLI special noontime speaker on privacy issues. More info to come.

Jan. 30, San Jose: The journal’s patent law symposium. I may be around at the conference some, but I’m double-booked with…

Jan. 30-31, SCU: The HTLI is hosting the ABA Business Law Section Cyberspace Committee’s Winter Working Meeting. Come interact with cyberlawyers from around the country (and the globe) as they work on their various work projects. The Winter Working Meeting is all about work, not about presentations, so it’s a unique and interesting way to get to know your colleagues. Hope you can make it!
