On February 28, 2014, I will speak at a continuing legal education program in South Bend, Indiana, on the topic of digital assets—iTunes music collections, Kindle books, Facebook accounts, and more. The law is usually behind the curve on technological developments, and the same is true when it comes to digital assets. It’s more than just including passwords in your estate plan. My colleague, Charles S. Leone, will be my co-presenter.
If you’re a lawyer or paralegal and you’d like to attend, you can download the registration from at the St. Joseph County Bar Association web site. Go there and choose CLE from the menu bar.
On Friday, March 9, I was a presenter at a CLE program in Indianapolis put on by the Indiana State Bar Association. The program was jointly presented by the ISBA’s Technology Committee and Law Practice Management Section. Our topic was data protection, using encryption and strong passwords to avoid malpractice and disciplinary matters.
My co-presenters were Jeff Goens, the president and general counsel of Dialawg and Seth Wilson (no relation) of Hume Smith Geddes Green & Simmons, in Indianapolis.
If you haven’t heard of Dialawg, I recommend you give it a look. Dialawg is a full-featured tool that lets you have secure communications with anyone you want. It has a free version that is worth checking out.
Since it’s an area of interest to me, I took up the issue of strong passwords. In case you’re interested, I’ve uploaded my presentation materials. There’s nothing new there, but sometimes it’s nice to have a file you can share with a colleague.
