Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to be a sponsor of the American Conference Institute's E-Summit, which will feature Loeb partner Ken Florin
From the conference site:
In November of 2007, the FTC held their first workshop on behavioral marketing, in response to consumer groups urging that techniques such as adware and spyware were a violation of consumer privacy. Whether or not the FTC decides to regulate this area, online business practices are undergoing a revolution, and it’s time you join in.
With the onslaught of changes in global and domestic privacy laws, e-mail and text message marketing, it is more necessary than ever to keep abreast of government trends and legal developments.
In an age where the database is king, the right people within the company must know how to manage it, and ensure utmost compliance with all laws and regulations while doing so. The responsibility of making sure that they’re doing it right ultimately falls on you.
Now is the time to align your teams, from legal to IT, to advertising and marketing, and ensure that they’re equipped and ready to face the changes to come.
ACI has carefully tailored this high-level program to meet the needs of businesses that operate online, and across the globe. With a series of targeted discussions ranging from corporate blogging to e-mail and wireless marketing, our E-Summit promises to be a veritable who’s who and how to for anyone operating in the online space.
