The International Intellectual Property Society is very pleased to announce that Sandra Kirsch, Privacy Counsel and Consultant and Frank Politano, Partner, K&L Gates LLP, will discuss Global Privacy including a review of international concerns and practice tips on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012, from 6-8 pm, at the IBM facility at 590 Madison Ave. in New York.
The topic is especially relevant, as the European Union is updating its data protection legal framework this year, and on March 26th, the FTC released its long-awaited final report on Consumer Privacy. Additionally, the Obama Administration recently called for legislation embodying a Privacy Bill of Rights and enforceable Privacy Codes of Conduct for corporations. Sandy will highlight key global regulations and outline the major issues in this rapidly evolving area of the law. She will touch upon the tension between US and European Law, and global compliance, transborder data flows, social networking and cloud computing. Frank will highlight a recent Supreme Court case, US v. Jones, on GPS Surveillance and the applicability of the 4th Amendment in the current technological environment.
Sandy Kirsch advises companies on creating privacy compliance programs in an international environment. Sandy has frequently participated in crafting and implementing privacy regulations and legislation. Previously she handled global privacy compliance at American Express and at IBM.
Frank Politano has deep expertise in intellectual property licensing and litigation. He is a frequent lecturer on trademark, copyright and licensing law at domestic and international conferences, and is an Adjunct Professor of Law at Seton Hall University School of Law.
