Legal Landmines in Europe for Internet-Based Businesses
June 30, 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET
So you think your business practices are EU-compliant? You could be blindsided by European laws and regulations that are foreign—in every sense of the word—to your accustomed way of doing business. The recent conviction of three Google executives by an Italian judge is one notable example. Don’t be caught off guard. Join Pike & Fischer’s panel of legal experts as they expose European laws (both enacted and proposed) that potentially render U.S.-based Internet businesses liable for intellectual property, privacy, e-commerce, speech, and other violations.
Peter Fleischer, Global Privacy Counsel, Google, and Winston Maxwell and David Taylor, both partners with Hogan Lovells in Paris, will cover a wide range of topics, including data retention obligations, collection of personal data, and liability for user-generated content. The session will be moderated by Christopher Wolf, Partner, Hogan Lovells in Washington, DC.
