Message from the Chair

Cheryl Dancey Balough

Dear Cyberspace Colleagues:

The snow clouds have all but disappeared over most of North America, and a more important “cloud” is about to make its debut: Cloud 3.0: Drafting and Negotiating Cloud Computing Agreements. Edited by Lisa Lifshitz and John Rothchild, this latest Cyberspace book launches this month. See below for more information on the book and how to order it. Many thanks to Lisa, John, and all the committee members who contributed chapters.

While Spring is just getting started, the BLS Spring Meeting in Vancouver is now in our rear window. The committee presented five excellent CLE programs. A big thank you to A.J. Bosco, Ted Claypoole, Bill Denny, Lisa Lifshitz, John Ottaviani, Carla Reyes, and Roland Trope for coordinating the programs. As soon as the audio recordings become available and updated materials have been uploaded, we will send you information on how to access the programs online.

We also had nine committee/subcommittee meetings in Vancouver—a few with some excellent speakers and all with productive discussions. Read more below about upcoming and ongoing committee projects and how to get involved.

The BLS Annual Meeting will take place in Washington DC on September 12-14. The Cyberspace Committee planning is underway. You will soon receive an email with guidelines for CLE program proposals. For now, note that your program proposals will be due by May 10. You do not need to have a leadership position in the committee to propose or chair a program. Please contact Ed Morse with any immediate questions.

Your last chance to express your preferences for the 2020 Cyberspace Law Institute is now. To let us know where you would like to meet, please access the survey here. As always, please feel free to share your ideas about any Cyberspace Law Committee project with Cheryl Burtzel or me.
