Who Governs the Internet, and Why Should Business Lawyers Care? – August 20, 2020

Michael Kelly and David Satola, co-chairs of the Internet Governance Task Force, will be joined by Samaneh Tajalizadehkhoob, Lead Security, Stability, & Resiliency Specialist at ICANN, as they present a Business Law Basics webinar on August 20 about “Who Governs the Internet, and Why Should Business Lawyers Care?” Internet Governance (IG) touches upon many aspects of business law practice. This panel will provide an overview of the main IG bodies (such as ICANN and IGF) and main IG approaches (multilateral and multi-stakeholder). The panelists will then discuss how an understanding of IG can help attorneys address common business law issues, such as domain name disputes, website hijacking, trademark infringement, SEO marketing abuses, and more. The webinar will take place at 1 pm ET. It is complimentary, but you must register here.
