Toronto intellectual property lawyer John Simpson is on tap on May 12 at the Law Tech Camp at U of T for a session exploring how the rapid growth of social media is challenging traditional conceptions of IP and the ability of companies to protect their IP and control its use in this relatively new frontier.
Some of the issues addressed will be:
What kinds of IP are created and used in social media (e.g. usernames, content and “followers” or “friends”)?
Who owns rights in that IP?
Are traditional IP laws adequately flexible to deal with issues arising from social media?
Simpson is the principal of Shift Law. John is on the Editorial Board of the Canadian Intellectual Property Review.
