  • Collecting Responsive ESI from Difficult Places
    Collecting Responsive ESI from Difficult Places Doug Austin and Tom O'Connor Recorded: Jun 20 2018 66 mins
    Believe it or not, there was a time when collecting potentially responsive ESI from email systems for discovery was once considered overly burdensome. Now, it’s commonplace and much of it can be automated. But, that’s not where all of the responsive ESI resides today – much of it is on your mobile device, in social media platforms and even in Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Are you ignoring this potentially important data? Do you have to hire a forensics professional to collect this data or can you do much of it on your own? This CLE-approved* webcast will discuss what lawyers need to know about the various sources of ESI today, examples of how those sources of data can be responsive to litigations and investigations, and how lawyers may be able to collect much of this data today using intuitive applications and simple approaches. Topics include:

    + Challenges from Various Sources of ESI Data
    + Ethical Duties and Rules for Understanding Technology
    + Key Case Law Related to Mobile Devices, Social Media and IoT
    + Options and Examples for Collecting from Mobile Devices
    + Options and Examples for Collecting from Social Media
    + Examples of IoT Devices and Collection Strategies
    + Recommendations for Addressing Collection Requirements
    + Resources for More Information

  • How to broaden patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods
    How to broaden patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & CTO of Lycoworks Recorded: Jun 20 2018 40 mins
    With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D becoming more competitive, many organisations are getting creative in how they increase the reach of their IP protection.

    One technique is to widen IP claims by patenting human experiences induced by the product or service. This is often seen in the automotive and consumer goods sectors, commonly describing visual and tactile sensations around the original technology.

    Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & Founder of Lyco Works has worked with many clients using this technique and will be hosting this webinar to discuss how your company could benefit from broadening patent claims in this way. He will also cover:

    - What patenting human experiences really means and looks like
    - The importance of not forgetting the human-impact your technologies create
    - How claim-broadening technique offers another layer of protection for your technology
    - Why it will make it much harder for your competitors to trap you in litigation cases.
  • How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data
    How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design Partnership Recorded: Jun 13 2018 39 mins
    Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.

    Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.

    R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.

    This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.

    Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.
  • 2018 Mid-Year Case Law Review
    2018 Mid-Year Case Law Review Judge James C. Francis IV (Ret.), Gareth T. Evans, and Michael Simon Recorded: Jun 6 2018 64 mins
    We’re in the midst of a golden age of evidence, with rapid data growth, from electronic documents to emails to social media, creating an ever-expanding universe of information potentially relevant to litigation.

    Yet legal practitioners and courts are still grappling with the consequences of this massive growth in digital evidence. How can parties ensure that the time and expense dedicated to discovery is proportional to the needs of the case? How should judges deal with practitioners who fail to adapt their past discovery strategies to new federal rules? When and how should courts sanction practitioners whose failure or refusal to handle digital evidence properly impedes the administration of justice?

    Join a panel of experts, including celebrated U.S. Magistrate Judge James C. Francis IV (Ret.), as we examine these questions through a survey of the most important cases of 2018 so far.

    Presenters
    Hon. James C. Francis IV

A widely recognized expert on eDiscovery, he has helped shape that evolution along the way.

    Gareth T. Evans
    Gareth Evans is a litigation partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, with 25 years of experience at the firm, where he is one of the founders and co-chairs of Gibson Dunn’s Electronic Discovery Practice Group and is one of the lead authors and editors of Gibson Dunn’s highly acclaimed eDiscovery Year-End and Mid-Year Reports.

  • GDPR is here – What’s next for organisations?
    GDPR is here – What’s next for organisations? Brian Tuemmler, Information Governance Program Architect & Jack McMillian, Technical Project Manager Jun 25 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    After months, and years, of talking about it, the 25th May 2018 has come and gone meaning the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in force. But what does that mean for organisations around the world? They are now faced with having to adjust their business practices to ensure compliance to the legislation given to data subjects – yet in seems that no one is ready or many have underestimated the extent of the organisational changes that lies ahead. We have already seen many news websites be taken offline for European audiences under the GDPR rules and the big player of Facebook and Google already accused of breaching the framework. It is only a matter of time before EU data subjects begin to fully exercise their rights, such as Subject Access Requests (SAR). How could you cope with the pressure of responding to these requests?
    There Is a silver lining. In this webinar, we review some practical steps that your business can take to address GDPR concerns, specifically when dealing with data subject requests.

    Key takeaways:
    •Explore practical steps that businesses can take to address their GDPR data requirements.
    •Discuss the ability to act post-GDPR, where it is never too late to begin building your infrastructure
    •Outline ways to improve costs and man power to address business GDPR issues, such as responding and producing subject access requests.
  • Surgical Threat Mitigation: Sharpen Your Response
    Surgical Threat Mitigation: Sharpen Your Response Paul Roberts, Security Ledger & Brandon Dobrec, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Jun 26 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cyber threat intelligence – when properly gathered, refined, and applied – can help organizations identify business risks and target both protections and mitigations.

  • Judge Peck and the Adventure of the Missing 502(d) Order
    Judge Peck and the Adventure of the Missing 502(d) Order Judge Andrew J. Peck, Michael Simon Jun 26 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It may be the greatest unsolved mystery in the legal practice: the case of the missing 502(d) order. These orders can act as a strong shield against the waiver of privilege or protection when information is inadvertently produced during litigation—providing much more protection than a clawback agreement alone.

    Yet observe the typical courtroom today and such orders will almost never be found. Why?

    Join Judge Andrew J. Peck as he discusses the potential benefits of 502(d) orders, why and how to use them, and why so many lawyers are failing to fully protect client information during litigation.

    About Judge Peck:

    Judge Andrew J. Peck has been a leading name in eDiscovery since 1995, when he was first appointed Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York. Just a few months after taking the bench, shortly after O.J. Simpson’s trial concluded and Windows 95 was released, Judge Peck issued a key eDiscovery opinion, ruling that companies must make electronic versions of their computerized data available during discovery.

    In the years that followed, Judge Peck penned several widely influential opinions, from the first opinion approving the use of predictive coding in Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Groupe to a recent warning to the bar over boilerplate discovery objections in Fischer v. Forrest. Judge Peck retired from the bench in March and now serves as senior counsel at DLA Piper.
