The legal ramifications of cloud computing will be under the spotlight at a conference to be held in Queensland this Thursday (17 November).
Presented by Australian Government Solicitor, Crown Law and the Queensland Law Society, the conference, 'What's in the clouds?', will focus on the number of legal issues raised by cloud computing, including the commercial, privacy and security concerns.
Speakers include AGS Brisbane senior executive lawyer Jane Lye, AGS Adelaide senior lawyer Andrew Schatz, AGS Canberra senior general counsel Tara McNeilly, Assistant Crown Solicitor Dominic Callaghan, and the senior policy adviser at Internet Society in Geneva, Christine Runnegar.
In addition to Thursday's cloud computing event, at the 2011 Business Law Conference, hosted by the Queensland Law Society this Tuesday (15 November), lawyers will discover how Energizer competes with Duracell in competitive advertising, what Optus did wrong in 2011, and how Apple locked horns with Samsung.
Lawyers attending the conference will learn the nuances of misleading advertising following the biggest year on record for penalties issued to businesses in that area, how to advise on disputes in small private companies, and the traps concerning valuations, information, assets, liabilities and options for extracting interests.
The 13 speakers at tomorrow's Business Law Conference include Bolam Legal principal Peter Bolam, MacDonnells Law partner Matthew Bowen, Allens Arthur Robinson senior lawyer John Hedge, DLA Piper Australia partner David Richardson and Queensland barrister Dimitrios Eliades.
