  • The Committee seeks to identify and address legal, business, and consumer issues affected by the implementation of emerging technologies and to facilitate the creation of legal infrastructures that protect and support electronic commerce

  • Intellectual property protection in the digital world
  • Mobile/telecommunications, digital media and Internet infrastructure and governance

Welcome From The Chair




We need your proposals for presentations in Chicago next fall at the ABA Business Law Section Annual Meeting. What topics interest you? Are we all prepared for the new European privacy rules? Are the old ones working for U.S. business? Is there more to financial technology in 2017 than blockchain? Will the change in administration affect regulation of U.S. cyberbusiness? Is cyberinsurance necessary? How have cloud contracts evolved to support customer needs? Pull together a talk or a panel discussion and advance legal thinking. We need the proposals before the end of April.

The Spring Meeting in New Orleans went well, with several excellent meetings and CLEs and a terrific creole dinner at Mother’s restaurant. The Section Dinner included a ride around the Crescent City on Mardi Gras floats.

Two of our committee’s books are nearly ready for publication, so keep an eye out for the release of Social Media Law, edited by Val Surgenor and John Isaza, and for Cyberspace Due Diligence in M & A Transactions, edited by Tom Smedinghoff and Roland Trope. Both should be released by the Business Law Section this spring or summer. And what about you? Is there a cyberspace legal book that is welling up inside you? Let us know. We can release it together.
