The first caveat is that I'm sorry I haven't posted anything
recently. Work here at Alerding Castor Hewitt has been going
like gangbusters and yours truly has been up to his distinguished
eyeballs in work. Trust me, however, I'm now dutifully
committing myself to continue providing insight and...

Your friendly neighborhood litigation attorney at Alerding Castor
Hewitt, LLP with a final post for the year to all of our business,
Indiana internet litigation, and technology law clients.
Saturday, December 25th will no doubt be a date of celebration in
many homes. As you spend time with your...

I can read your mind. You are thinking, "oh, great and
insightful technology legal counsel, what do you mean by a 'legal
landscape' and what does that have to do with blogging?" My
initial response is that, (a) you've asked two questions and (b) if
you plan to use blogging as a component of your...

Thanks to the wonderful folks over at Compendium Blogware, I
presented a fun webinar last week on the Legal Landscape of
Corporate Blogging. Don't fret, dear reader; I intend
to put together several posts over the weekend that hit the
highlights of my presentation. Overall, I discussed...

I know that you are expecting witty and poignant analysis of some
new and exciting aspect of technology and / or privacy litigation,
but that's not really the point of this post. Rather,
the impetus of this concoction of literary excellence is a
realization that I had regarding social media. In...

Ok, I'll admit it. I was in a rut. Although I found
numerous interesting tidbits through-out cyberspace, I could not
find anything that piqued my interest enough to put aside the
billable hours of a technology legal counsel for a few moments to
blog about it. But, lo and behold, a college student...

Here is one of those convergence points where business law and
privacy law intersect and effectuate additional administrative
duties on the business holder. In a rather interesting
bulletin, the Connecticut Department of Insurance issued a
directive on August 18, 2010, requiring "that all licensees...

I don't often blanket repost other blogs that I see, however, in
this instance, I think it is appropriate. Venkat, writing for
Professor Goldman's blog, writes an excellent analysis of the
recent ruling in the In re: Easysaver Rewards Litigation(S.D. Cal.
August 13, 2010). This is a very...

Another post that doesn't quite fit neatly into Indiana Internet
litigation or privacy law, but that intrigues me.
BusinessWeek, passing along a Tim Greene article from NetworkWorld
(found here: www.networkworld.com/nwlookup.jsp), is reporting that
the U.S. military has issued an essay in which it...

Back in October, 2009, I posted about the new endorsement /
testimonial rules set out by the Federal Trad Commission
There has been some development since that time, but mostly
everyone is still watching and waiting....

The ACH litigation team had its first ever (as far as I'm aware)
litigation retreat this weekend, and as I reminisce on our time, I
am struck by the realization that to be a successful business, you
have to allow your team to envision and strive for excellence with
you. This weekend we had some...

Gather 'round kids, this one is interesting. The decision
actually came out in May, 2010, and I regret that I haven't had a
chance to blog on it until now, but it is still a very interesting
order that should have implications to privacy litigation, and
litigation in general. In EEOC v. Simply...

Your friendly Indianapolis attorney and Partner In Success at
Alerding Castor Hewitt, LLP here with another post, this time for
both business entities and lawyers who find themselves in the
trenches of business law, SaaS law, internet laws, and privacy
litigation and probate litigation. Partner and...

This is one of those great posts that gets to combine cloud
computing law with privacy law with political intrigue.
Before I get too far in, I want to set out my own caveat. In
my opinion, there is a data war brewing between the United
States, EU, and China and everyone if vying for the top...

Your friendly neighborhood technology counsel here: A couple
of recent state court decisions are going to start personal injury
attorneys frothing at the mouth, and might render some sleepless
nights for defense attorneys. Both Ohio and Florida recently
issued opinions in which they applied their...

Be prepared: I'm going to get on a bit of a soapbox. I
read a recent article at WSJ.com entitled "Using Social Networking
as Legal Tool" (Linked Below). There is nothing wrong
with this article. It very succinctly and pleasantly explains
how certain law firms are using social networking and the...

Your friendly neighborhood technology counsel here: So,
Mexico recently passed a new data protection law. On April
27, 2010, Mexico passed the Federal Law for the Protection of
Personal data, which is likely to be signed into law by the
President in the near future. This law not only allows for...

I must take a moment to open with a caveat. The study of
privacy and hence privacy law or privacy litigation is an analysis
that spans centuries. In fact, while it seems like privacy
issues have only recently come to the forefront with the advent of
technology, they have, in fact, been prevalent...

Your friendly neighborhood technology lawyer here: Clients
and colleagues often ask me to explain what I mean when I say
"technology litigation". And, to be frank, that term is
really composed of several different subsets of the law. One
such subset is privacy law. Over the next several blog...

Your friendly neighborhood technology lawyer here: As
you know, I'm a bit of a technophile and I've been watching the
iPad craze with interest. There are other similar products
that will be inundating the market in the near future (HP Slate and
the one that I'm watching with anticipation, Notion...
