The conference will be keynoted by Steve Mortinger (IBM Systems and Technology Group VP and Associate General Counsel), who will be discussing “The Top Ten Things a Brand Should Know about Virtual Worlds.” Other speakers and panelists include practicing attorneys, law professors, marketing strategists, and executives. I’m moderating a couple of panels, and also presenting “Virtual Law for Non-Lawyers,” a fast-paced overview of hot issues in virtual law for non-attorneys and lawyers new to this stuff.
The conference will be held at the Javits Center in New York, April 3-4. It will feature eight one-hour presentations on a wide range of topics including intellectual property enforcement, license agreement best practices, litigation strategies, virtual property, virtual currency, and more. Early registration ($595) is less than half the cost at the door, and is open until February 29, 2008. Registration also covers entrance to the “Virtual Worlds 2008” conference (which runs concurrently) and all associated events.
Virtually Blind is a media partner for the conference (hence, the advertisement you’ve seen running in the right column the last month or so) and I am one of the conference advisors and co-chairs, along with attorney Sean Kane. I look forward to seeing many VB readers in New York in April.
