Is Financial Crime Going Viral? Money Laundering, Fraud and Ponzi Schemes in the Pandemic Era (01/26/2021)

Program Number: 3136 Presenter: Ross S. Delston, Timothy Dunfey, Esq.

Financial crime is a constant whatever the era but in times of crisis criminals become even more creative. Coronavirus ‘cures’, PPEs, testing and vaccines all present attractive opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage of our collective anxiety by selling fakery. Ponzi schemes, a ubiquitous phenomenon, often come to light in times of financial crisis since old investors demand redemption and new investors are hard for fraudsters to find. Finally, in the pandemic, trade-based money laundering, another common criminal scheme, can be used to greater effect due to price gyrations and scarcity in previously available goods and commodities. Learning Objectives: • Distinctions between and among different types of fraud, money laundering and other financial crime; • How to recognize commonly used financial crime schemes; • Why red flags are crucial to legal practitioners in banking, securities, contract, M&A, and consumer fields; Topics are targeted to attorneys in the regulatory, compliance, litigation and criminal

In this session, we will explore real-world incidents and threats to assemble an actionable cyber resilience framework that adapts to distributed assets, remote workers, and virtual workloads.

To Embed, or Not to Embed, that is the Question (01/22/2021)

Program Number: 3114 Presenter: Michael D. Hobbs, Jr. Esq., Shaleen J. Patel, Esq.

A discussion on an increasingly tumultuous area of on-line copyright law. The discussion focuses on a trend where courts are increasingly allowing cases to proceed on the merits in instances of media publishers embedding, a practice of displaying content from one platform into another without actually hosting the underlying content. For years, such a practice seemed safe under the Ninth Circuit’s “server test.” However, districts in other circuits are rejecting that the server test is settled law and questioning the legality of embedding. As social media makes embedding content a more available feature, this broadcast discusses the risks of continuing to embed content without first acquiring permission and possible alternatives.
