There are slots remaining, but please grab them fast, since attendance and hotel space are limited.

We're featuring a tremendous lineup of speakers:

Ray Beckerman (Vandenberg & Feliu)
Scott Bradner (Harvard University)
Doug Carlson (New York University)
Paul Ginsparg (Cornell University)

Steve Schuster (Cornell University)
Ed Thomas (Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis)
Steve Worona (EDUCAUSE)

This year's sessions include:

P2P Litigation and Policy
What CALEA will mean to you
Bots, Spyware, and Virus Scans: Who owns the desktop?
Information Security and Data-breach Notification
Privacy Law and Campus Privacy Policy
The "Network Neutrality" Debate
Copyright 101
Copyright Hot Topic: Google
Internet Governance: The emergence of IPv6
Introduction to the Law for non-lawyers

I'm particularly looking forward to first-time participant Ray Beckerman's discussion of his experiences defending students and others against music-industry lawsuits. (See Ray's blog at <>.) And in this year of highly visible and highly contentious legislative battles over telecommunications reform, the CALEA and Network Neutrality sessions will be particularly noteworthy. Which is not to diminish all of the other sessions, from security to privacy to copyright. I expect them to justify the comments of several long-time attendees that the ICPL Summer Seminar gets better and better each year!

As always, we're allowing lots of time for give-and-take between the audience and presenters, and repeating our popular and entertaining case-study role-play, featuring a topic from current headlines. And be sure to sign up for Wednesday night's Cayuga Lake dinner cruise.

Hope to see you in June!
