The panel will be Friday, April 25th at 12:00 noon, Pacific. It will focus on legal issues associated with doing business in virtual worlds, and will cover employment issues, intellectual property issues, and more, from both a U.S. and international perspective. The panel will be presented as a structured conversation, and there will be plenty of time for audience questions. I’m the moderator, and the panelists are a great group of attorneys:
- Doug Wolf – U.S. and international intellectual property law specialist.
- Dave Elchoness – Employment law specialist and CEO of VRWorkplace.
- David Naylor – Field Fisher Waterhouse (UK) partner; IP, media, and technology specialist, and president of the SL Bar Association.
I’m hoping for a really good discussion. The whole in-world four-day vBusiness Expo (April 24-27) looks like it is coming together really well. Hat tip to Nick and Caleb and the rest of the Clever Zebra folks for putting this together. If you’ve not registered yet, here’s a link to the vBusiness Expo registration page. The whole thing is free, but registrations are limited, so you should probably sign up soon if you’re planning to attend.
