SFIPLA is happy to present an all-star virtual CLE panel focused on IP issues and considerations arising out of Section 230. This is not the same policy or political focused Section 230 debate you’ve seen lately! Rather, this panel is intended to be useful to practitioners advising on the current and future state of Section 230, and will cover past and present impact and relevance of the law in the IP field.  The panelists will discuss:

  • Origins of Section 230
  • Its relevance to IP law
  • Recent cases on Section 230 and their impact
  • Reform proposals and why this debate matters for IP practitioners and their clients
