This Colloquium departs from the usual presentation of research results and new and innovative products to spend some time learning about the nitty-gritty legal details of web-based services.
There has been substantial discussion in the press and on the web. See, for example, the comments posted on Dave Farber's IP (Interesting Persons) list, on http://www.slashdot.org/, and articles elsewhere in the trade press.
