Symposium Description:

Cyberlaw 2.0: Legal Challenges of an Evolving Internet brings together a group of distinguished scholars to contemplate the ramifications of new internet technologies and the changing role of the internet in society. These developments bring, as technological advances often do, both opportunities and risks. Correspondingly, cyberlaw doctrine now confronts challenges resulting from the increasing importance of social networking applications and cloud computing, the drive toward “personalization” of search, advertising, and other internet experiences, and, as life is lived more and more online, the related threats to private life caused by the potential to store more and more complete records of individuals’ experiences. Our speakers will explore the ways in which Web 2.0 and beyond affects a wide spectrum of legal issues, ranging from privacy and freedom of expression through intellectual property.

The Symposium will be hosted by the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology (CIPLIT™) of DePaul University College of Law.
