Recent Blockchain Class Action Settlements Provide Tips for Future Cases (07/21/2020)

Program Number: 30181 Presenter: Marc D. Powers, Esq., Joanna F. Wasick, Esq.

This webinar examines two class actions and their recent settlements involving companies engaged in Initial Coin Offerings of blockchain tokens in 2017; Tezos Foundation and ATBCoin. By looking at the different circumstances and outcomes of the two cases – with a $25 million settlement in Tezos and a $250,000 settlement in ATB – Marc Powers and Joanna Wasick discuss what the implications may be for future class action settlements against issuers of cryptocurrencies, specifically those involving foreign defendants. Upon a closer look, the Tezos and ATB cases can show parties in ongoing ICO class actions that less obvious, and less traditional, defenses and issues, which are specific to the nature of ICOs and blockchain technology, may well be the difference between a significant settlement and a trivial one.

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.

FISA: More of Everything You Didn’t Know (03/28/2019)

Program Number: 2946 Presenter: George W. Croner, Esq.

Correspondingly, the ability to surveil constitutes one of those activities most susceptible to abuse by a government against its citizens. In the U.S., the government’s use of electronic surveillance is highly regulated and can be conducted for only two purposes: law enforcement, which is undertaken by both federal and state governments; and foreign intelligence collection, which is an exclusively federal government function conducted pursuant to a single authority - the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act or “FISA”. FISA governs not only electronic surveillance but the use of physical searches, pen registers, trap and trace devices, and business records collection to acquire foreign intelligence.
