HCBA Tech Talk Tuesday: Internet of Things and Wearables

1.0 CLE credit applied for this program.


Featuring: Damien A. Riehl, Counsel, Robins Kaplan LLP 

Currently "dumb” devices are becoming increasingly connected – to the Internet and to each other. For example, Internet-enabled thermostats, sprinklers, and door locks can communicate with cloud-based services like If This Then That (IFTTT) – to water lawns based upon the weather, or to automatically unlock doors and pre-heat furnaces when homeowners’ phones reach predetermined GPS thresholds. With such interconnectedness, what are some legal implications and pitfalls? When they malfunction, who in the chain of connectedness bears liability? What if a connected device feeds private data to an undisclosed third party? This session will explore potential legal implications of this ever-expanding Internet of Things.    Join us monthly for Tech Talk Tuesday with attorney Damien Riehl, a frequent speaker and writer on legal topics that affect businesses, including Internet law, computer and technology law, copyright, and trademark law. Damien practices in the Business Litigation group, as well as in Intellectual Property Litigation at Robins Kaplan LLP.  His cases span a wide range, including technology law, copyright, trademarks, business torts, breaches of contract, antitrust, and financial litigation. His clients have included large businesses, small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals.
