Cyberlaw 2.0: Legal Challenges of an Evolving Internet
CIPLIT's 9th annual Symposium brought together a group of distinguished scholars to contemplate the ramifications of new internet technologies and the changing role of the internet in society. The speakers explored 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.

In addition, the 12th Annual Niro Distinguished Intellectual Property Lecture and Luncheon was held on October 15th, 2009 in conjunction with the Symposium. This year the lecture was given by Mark Lemley, Stanford Law School’s William H. Neukom Professor of Law.
