Copyright & Trademarks - SES San Jose 2005

I love the legal aspects of search. It's intriguing to see how old laws are applied to this new medium, sometimes usefully, sometimes showing how archaic they are. Jeffrey K. Rohrs of Optiem loves the legal aspect as well. He was one of our earliest SES attendees and a recovering attorney who asked me way back when if I thought our audiences would like a panel on legal issues. Would they ever, I said! I'd done a "hands up" audience poll not too long before this and found that plenty of people wanted to know about search and the law.

Jeffrey's been diligently pulling together panels on various legal issues for years now at the show. Copyright & Trademarks is a new one for SES San Jose 2005.
