Digital Conference

Convened in the Bay Area every May in partnership with the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, Legal Frontiers in Digital Media explores emerging legal issues at the intersection of digital media, freedom of speech, and law.

Perennial topics covered at this conference include: Section 230 and related reform efforts; Computer Fraud and Abuse Act decisions impacting automated online data collection; the challenges of content moderation; California and other state privacy law compliance; European regulations and legislative developments; and digital copyright. In recent years, this conference has also covered such issues as anonymous online speech and the legal issues surrounding “deepfake” videos, and featured speakers like former Yale Law School Dean Robert Post and Facebook’s Head of Global Policy, Monika Bickert. Notably, in 2016, the Legal Frontiers in Digital Media conference was the first event to feature the advocates on opposing sides of the San Bernardino iPhone unlocking controversy, Ted Boutrous and U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, Eileen M. Decker.
