The MSBA's Computer & Technology Law Section Presents


"15 Of The Top Computer Law-Related Decisions (since 2010) That Every Lawyer Should Know"

This fast-paced 60 minute program will focus on 15 important computer law-related decisions that have broad-reaching impacts on attorneys. Speakers Jim Blomquist and Jon Farnsworth will summarize the importance of, and explain the practical lessons learned from, these cases.

Topics encompass: social media and networking, Constitutional privacy rights, non-competition agreements, patents, trademarks, cybersquatters, trade secrets, copyright, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Stored Communications Act, attorney-client privilege, employment policies, protected union activity, and illegal government search and seizures.


James A. Blomquist, Felhaber, Larson, Fenlon and Vogt, P.A.
Jim Blomquist’s law practice covers all types of commercial contracts including, particularly, technology related matters, trademark law, copyright law, domain name and trade secret protection. His clients include both software developers and users, as well as authors, publishers, printing companies, health care providers and nonprofit companies. Jim is a past officer and chairperson, and currently an active member of the Computer Law & Technology Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association.

Jon L. Farnsworth, Felhaber, Larson, Fenlon and Vogt, P.A.
Jon acts as outside general counsel to privately-held companies, providing customized legal solutions to enhance their commercial endeavors. He represents clients in a variety of business and litigation matters. Jon augments his general practice with a unique niche, consulting and advising clients with respect to internet domain names. Many clients are astonished to learn that two of their most valuable assets—their internet domain name and website—are plagued with cybersquatters who deliberately profit at the expense of the clients’ intellectual property rights. Jon provides a common-sense approach to successfully regaining control of intellectual property rights and preventing future instances of abuse.
