2:30 - 3:20 PM // Session 1: What is Fair:  Enforcement Trends Concerning the Use of Consumer Data

This program will address the increasing government scrutiny of companies’ use of alternative or sensitive data to make key decisions, particularly those involving consumers or financial services, with a focus on what in-house counsel should do to anticipate and protect against inquiries by state and federal agencies.

3:30 - 4:20 PM // Session 2: Top Things You Should Know about AI, Biometrics and Privacy

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become pervasive in our everyday lives, from online shopping and job interviews all the way through to government surveillance. The technology is evolving quickly but brings with it both convenience as well as a number of legal issues. This program will cover the top things you should know about the privacy-related impacts of artificial intelligence, including in the context of biometrics and facial recognition. Presenters will address topics such as transparency around the use and operation of AI-powered products and services, the current legal regime in the U.S. governing AI and, in particular, biometrics, how current and upcoming U.S. consumer data privacy laws may impact the use of AI and machine learning models, and recent litigation and enforcement actions in the AI and biometric space (particularly under Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”)).

4:20 – 4:30 PM // Break

4:30 – 5:20 PM // Session 3: IP Issues in the World of NFTs

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have exploded in popularity, and in some well-publicized cases, have commanded shockingly high prices.  The IP issues in the world of NFTs can seem new and different, but are they really?  We’ll discuss the opportunities and risks for your companies in the world of NFTs, and in particular, who has the rights to mint and sell NFTs; what rights are being sold, licensed, or transferred; and what steps your legal department can take to monitor and enforce its IP rights when it comes to NFTs.  At the end of the day, we may conclude that the more things change, the more they stay the same.  

Presented by Cozen O'Connor

5:20-5:30 // Break

5:30-6:20 // Session 4: The Ride Continues: Further Unpacking of Regulatory and Enforcement Trends with Cryptocurrency and Digital Assets

The wide variety of regulatory regimes and agencies with potential jurisdiction over cryptocurrency and digital asset products, including FinCEN, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and banking regulators.  We will discuss additional recent regulatory and enforcement activity from each regime, focusing mostly on US regimes but also touching upon some recent non-US regulatory activity.
