Keynote Speaker

Section 230 is the legal foundation of the modern Internet, but it’s poorly understood by many lawyers.  In particular, IP lawyers may be surprised by how much Section 230 has to say about IP law.  This keynote will demystify the law and explain why IP lawyers should care.

Eric Goldman is Associate Dean for Research, Professor of Law, Co-Director of the High Tech Law Institute, and Supervisor of the Privacy Law Certificate, at Santa Clara University School of Law. His research and teaching focuses on Internet law, and he blogs on that topic at the Technology & Marketing Law Blog.
