Joining LXBN TV to explain specifically what happened in the case and why it’s a significant victory is Seattle attorney Karin Jones, with Stoel Rives.
It is expected that, by 2020, more than 30 billion devices will be connected to the internet. This of course, isn’t limited to the traditional phones, computers and tablets.

As such, it was only a matter of time before the FTC began regulating this so-called “Internet of things.” They officially marked their entrance into the space with a proposed settlement with TRENDnet, Inc., the makers of internet-connected security cameras.

Joining LXBN TV to explain is attorney Jeff Greco of Greco & Associates and the New York Criminal Law Advisor.
The problem with conferences, almost no matter what size, is that you’re always being talked too. It isn’t a conversation, and you don’t have too much say in the materials presented. That changes a bit this year with the Legal Marketing Technology Conference West as the event’s pre-conference Preboot for Mastery workshops give attendees a hands-on experience they have a say in. Joining LXBN TV to explain what attendees can expect is Ramona Whitley, Director of Client Services at Allen Matkins.

Joining LXBN TV to explain as part of our pre-event coverage of the 2013 Legal Marketing Technology Conference West is Chris Fristch, President of ClientsFirst Consulting.
