When Competitors Cheat - How Businesses can use State Consumer Laws to Protect Themselves and the Marketplace (04/28/2020)

Program Number: 3096 Presenter: Richard Lawson, Esq.

While often lumped under the rubric of “consumer protection” laws, many state unfair and deceptive trade practices (UDAP) laws also allow businesses to file lawsuits. When a competitor is engaged in a deceptive or unfair practice which harms consumers, a company is often also harmed due to lost business. Certain state statutes allow businesses to bring actions to combat these unlawful competitors. Additionally, there are times where a trade association can bring an injunctive action against a deceptive or unfair business which may be causing industry wide disruption. This program will provide an overview of the nature and history of consumer protection laws, the key legal theories underlying them, the basis for businesses and trade associations / non-governmental organizations to have standing to sue, and the kinds of relief that can be obtained.

The Shield Act: Are You Compliant (05/20/2020)

Program Number: 3077 Presenter: Nick Akerman, Esq.

On March 20th a new law in New York went into effect requiring all businesses holding personal data belonging to New York residents to institute specific data security measures. Known as the “Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act" (the “Shield Act”), this new statute will be enforced by the New York Attorney General and mandates that a company must implement a number of “administrative, technical and physical safeguards” and appoint an employee to manage the cybersecurity program. Among other changes, the new law expands the definition of personal information and the definition of what constitutes a data breach. Failure to comply with this new statute authorizes the Attorney General to obtain statutory damages and the actual damages to consumers.

Similarly, Model Rule 1.6 calls for lawyers to make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, information relating to the representation of a client. To help mitigate risk, this program will discuss areas such as end user security training, the importance of executing backup drills, key elements of a proper law firm defensive infrastructure, advice for remote working scenarios and other topics.

Synthetic Reality & Deep Fakes: What's Next and What it Means for the Future of Work (10/13/2020)

Program Number: 30241 Presenter: Michael Chinchester, Jr., Esq., Aaron Crews, Esq.

The presenters propose a tangible perspective on AI, one where the proliferation of Deep Fakes and the ability to leverage this technology may challenge standards for information dissemination, communication and our most basic assumptions of reality—where once seeing was believing. These inauthentic intrusions not only impact our society generally, and our political system and growing divisions more specifically, but also spill into our workplaces in a way that forces employers to grapple with the often-inevitable effects. Employers will need to adjust to this new reality and understand the means of minimizing the potentially negative impact, including the utilization of data analytics to protect companies and their workforces from exploitative uses of false information.

Trademark Counterfeiting in the 2020’s (10/14/2020)

Program Number: 30237 Presenter: Anthony F. Lo Cicero, Esq.

The old tactics of anticounterfeiting enforcement against street vendors and flea market operators have largely been replaced with online takedown notices, mass litigations against unnamed defendants and border enforcement. On the flip side, the “counterfeiting” label is being applied to activities different from what we have seen in the past, as reflected in the Second Circuit’s decision in Tiffany & Co. v. Costco Wholesale Corp. and elsewhere. Join Tony Lo Cicero, Managing Partner of Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein as he discusses these developments and their likely impact for the future.

Designing a Future Proofed Privacy Compliance Program (07/22/2020)

Program Number: 30177 Presenter: David A. Zetoony, Esq.

For the past six years many companies have been reactive when addressing data privacy concerns – first responding to the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and then the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). As data privacy laws continue to grow and evolve, companies are stepping back and thinking about how to build privacy compliance programs that incorporate core privacy concepts from the GDPR and the CCPA, but are flexible enough to account for future privacy laws. The program will discuss the core components of a jurisdiction agnostic privacy compliance program.
