Mar 15: Who Owns My Data? IP and Privacy Online

March 15 | 11:30am-1:30pm
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.

Sean Flynn, Associate Director, Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property

John Verdi, EPIC Senior Counsel, Electronic Privacy Information Center

Greg Beck, Staff Attorney, Public Citizen Litigation Group
