Summer Webinar Spotlight

As part of Loeb’s Connectivity Webinar Series, we have hosted several informative and timely webinars on hot-button industry topics that haven arisen due to rapid technology development in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the use of cookies and tracking devices. Our team delved into the latest trends and shared practical advice on how to be prepared to navigate these emerging issues through a series of live webinars over the summer. Here are the details on each of these tech-forward webinars hosted recently by various Loeb teams:

The Cookie Conundrum: Navigating the Latest Trends in Privacy Litigation and FTC Enforcement

Loeb’s Data Governance Litigation and Investigations team delved into the latest trends in Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcement actions and privacy litigation in this webinar, which focused on the recent surge in lawsuits related to the use of cookies and other trackers on websites. Companies are at risk of costly settlements, fees and regulatory penalties, from claims of wiretapping violations to Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) actions, as the FTC continues to expand its use of all its enforcement tools.

The team shared practical advice for reducing or mitigating enforcement risks for companies and elaborated on the efforts underway to use wiretapping laws by the VPPA, other state and federal laws intended to attack the use of website cookies and trackers, and how to defend a company’s position when it is served with a civil investigative demand subpoena.
