Virtual Worlds Fall 2007 Conference and Expo (San Jose, Oct. 10-11) to Feature Issues in Virtual Law
September 7th, 2007 by Benjamin Duranske
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be attending the Virtual Worlds Fall 2007 Conference and Expo in San Jose, Oct. 10-11. It looks like a great conference, and I’m really fired up about it. By way of disclosure, Virtually Blind is a media partner with the conference (you’ll notice a spot in the sidebar), but I’d be telling you about this one anyway as it will definitely appeal to a lot of readers; there are presentations that touch on virtual law in nearly every time slot.
Several sessions will be particularly interesting to attorneys and other professionals working in virtual spaces, including “Economics of Virtual Worlds” presented by Edward Catronova, “IP Wealth and Pitfalls of Synthetic Worlds,” presented by attorney Sean Kane (one of the people with whom I co-chair the Virtual Worlds and Multiplayer Online Games Committee of the ABA’s Section of Science and Technology Law), and two seperate panel discussions on virtual currency and virtual goods featuring some of the names that make regular appearances on VB, including, among others, John Zdanowski (CFO of Linden Lab), Craig Sherman (CEO of Gaia Online), Eric Bethke (CEO of GoPets), and Guntram Graef (CEO of Anshe Chung Studios).
I plan to attend the conference both days; let me know if you are planning to be there too and would like to meet up.
