    The School of Law's next IP symposium will discuss whether posting to social media sites at work is a reason for dismissal and new EU rules on cookies.

    The annual Seminar on Significant Developments in Intellectual Property Law of Computers and Cyberspace will focus on licensing, patenting, policing and navigating cutting-edge technologies.

    Now in its 21 year, the seminar will be held Friday, June 10, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Keller Hall. Register online now.

    The seminar will examine such topics as whether posting at work to social media sites, like Facebook and You Tube, is a reason for dismissal; a new European Union directive requiring websites to obtain visitors' consent for cookies; venue selection in patent cases; trademark counterfeiting; and the right of publicity, the First Amendment and the digital world.

    "Social media is a hot topic because it is such a big part of everyone's lives, whether for business or not," said Kelly Henrici, executive director of the University of Dayton School of Law's Program in Law and Technology, which is organizing the seminar.

    The daylong conference will feature national and international experts, including Lesley Fair, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission, and U.S. federal claims Judge Edward Damich are among the scheduled speakers.

    A full schedule is available elsewhere on our website.
