Feb. 19, 2008 – Openness

The IIPS is most fortunate to have Dr. Laura DeNardis, Executive Director of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School, join us on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at IBM Corporation, 590 Madison Avenue (at 57th Street and Madison Avenue) in New York City on the 12th Floor, Room 1219. Dr. DeNardis will provide an overview of THE GLOBAL POLITICS OF INTEROPERABILITY: Intellectual Property and Openness in an Information Society.

Dr. DeNardis is the author of Information Technology in Theory (2007 with Pelin Aksoy) and numerous other writings addressing the legal and political implications of information technologies and new media. Her presentation will describe some global implications of the degree of openness in information and communication standards, suggest ways in which the degree of openness in information and communication technology (“ICT”) standards can have pronounced implications on developing countries, and examine global trends toward governments establishing policies to procure information technologies based on standards that adhere to principles of openness.

The fee for non-members is $20. Admission for law school students is $10. The nominal $60 annual membership dues fee may be enclosed with the membership application. Membership entitles you to attend other regular meetings during the September 2007-September 2008 year at no charge. If you would like to reserve your space and/or pay at the door, or if you have any questions about this program, please contact Harris Wolin at harris.wolin@myerswolin.com.

As with IIPS programs in general, NY CLE credit will be offered. This seminar will provide two nontransitional CLE credits. Mail the Membership Form with annual dues, or meeting payment by February 12, 2008, to Harris Wolin at Myers Wolin, LLC, 100 Headquarters Plaza, Morristown, NJ 07960.
