As promised earlier this week, click here for the slides from my Northern District of Illinois Cyberlaw Trends presentation to the Chicago Bar Association’s Cyberlaw & Data Privacy Committee last Tuesday.  It was a very interactive presentation, so the slides cannot convey the full content of the presentation, but I think you will still find them useful.  Here is an overview of the ten trends I discussed:

  1. Downloading music has consequences
  2. Copyright infringement can lead to jail time
  3. Dot com’s are favorite defendants
  4. Non-practicing entities are a major force
  5. Keywords and thumbnails
  6. Virtual world – Real litigation
  7. Website content
  8. Old world content – New world tracking
  9. CLC v. Craigslist  — Communications Decency Act
  10. Electronic Discovery
