Mark your calendars! Peter S. Vogel, trial partner at Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP and contributor of this blog will host “Legal Issues in the Development of the Internet: The Five Big Bang Theory,” a State Bar of Texas Webcast on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 from 12:30-1:30pm CST.
TOPICS: Statutes and judicial rulings have impacted the development of the Internet, and this program will include a description of how laws including antitrust and intellectual property helped shape the Internet including Social Media. The Five Big Bang Theory describes technological developments since the invention of the punch card for the 1890 US Census, computers during World War II, proliferation of the browsers, and advent of Social Media. However each phase of the Five Big Bang Theory has been impacted by the law. So it also likely that the 6th Big Bang will also be impacted by the law whenever it occurs.
