Digital Maze: Exploring The Legal Issues Encountered by Digital Media Companies

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

  • Suzanne Huges
  • Laura Dauny
  • Simon Stokes

Monday 28th May, 2012

2:00pm to 2:30pm (GMT)

A presentation and workshop by solicitors in the Corporate/IP and IT team at Blake Lapthorn looking at the legal issues facing digital media companies, from starting up through to protection and exploitation of intellectual property, particularly software.

Questions answered :
As part of last year's Digital Shoreditch, we worked with the London Metropolitan University to provide one-to-one advice clinics. We were regularly asked about legal issues surrounding the start-up of digital media companies. There was also demand for insight into how a company should best protect its IP - especially any software that the company has developed - and how best to exploit third party IP. We also gave advice on website terms and conditions, user terms, privacy policies, the use of cookies and the processing of personal data. We would love to expand our clinics this year to a full workshop/presentation and focus on the broader legal issues commonly encountered by digital media companies and take questions.
