March 15th - Who Owns My Data?: Privacy Regulations and the 1st Amendment

March 15 | 11:30am-1:30pm
Room 603
Presented by the IP Law Society, IP Brief, and PIJIP

In Sorrell v. IMS Health, Inc., the Supreme Court is faced with the question of whether a state regulation requiring consent for the sale of physician identifiable prescription records is a violation of the First Amendment.  The impact of a Supreme Court ruling on privacy law could reach far beyond health records to the issue of data ownership and privacy protection in internet commerce.  Counsel for amici will debate the issue and discuss the ramifications for privacy protections and data-driven industries, from search engines to social networking.
