The MSBA's Computer & Technology Law Section Presents


"Heads (and Businesses) in the Cloud: Navigating the Legal Effects of Cloud Computing"

With many businesses and individuals moving to cloud computing, the law is adapting to catch up with those who have moved their computing experience and storage away from their own physical boxes: toward cloud computing and other Web-based services. Examples include Web-based e-mail (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo Mail), document creation and storage (e.g., Google Docs and Microsoft Office Live), file storage (e.g., Dropbox and SugarSync), and cloud computing services (e.g., Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure, and Google Apps Marketplace). This presentation will provide caselaw, fact scenarios, and other points discussing the law's adjustment to those who increasingly work and play in the cloud.
