The Dram Shop Act: An Update (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3165 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

Dram Shop liability arises out of a vendor’s duty to the public not to sell liquor to visibly intoxicated people, so while legislation seeks to shift some responsibility to alcohol providers, violations are often difficult to prove. New York’s Dram Shop Act affords individuals who are injured as a result of another’s intoxication a cause of action against the party that unlawfully sold, provided, or assisted in providing, the alcohol to the intoxicant. The legislation targets vendors, usually a bar or restaurant, that sell alcohol to visibly intoxicated adults, and social hosts who knowingly allow minors to drink.

Additionally, Operation Warp Speed has been an impressive scientific endeavor, helping to bring vaccines to market in record time. As FDA has adapted quickly to the most up to date knowledge about this novel virus and changing scientific data, including real world evidence, what is in store for 2021?

Trademark Counterfeiting in 2021 (02/17/2021)

Costco Wholesale Corp. and elsewhere. Join Tony Lo Cicero, Managing Partner of Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein as he discusses these developments and their likely impact for the future.

Lessons in Disaster: Learning from Law Firm Cyber Breaches (02/23/2021)

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.

When Competitors Cheat - How Businesses can use State Consumer Laws to Protect Themselves and the Marketplace (04/28/2020)

Program Number: 3096 Presenter: Richard Lawson, Esq.

While often lumped under the rubric of “consumer protection” laws, many state unfair and deceptive trade practices (UDAP) laws also allow businesses to file lawsuits. When a competitor is engaged in a deceptive or unfair practice which harms consumers, a company is often also harmed due to lost business. Certain state statutes allow businesses to bring actions to combat these unlawful competitors. Additionally, there are times where a trade association can bring an injunctive action against a deceptive or unfair business which may be causing industry wide disruption. This program will provide an overview of the nature and history of consumer protection laws, the key legal theories underlying them, the basis for businesses and trade associations / non-governmental organizations to have standing to sue, and the kinds of relief that can be obtained.

The Shield Act: Are You Compliant (05/20/2020)

Program Number: 3077 Presenter: Nick Akerman, Esq.

On March 20th a new law in New York went into effect requiring all businesses holding personal data belonging to New York residents to institute specific data security measures. Known as the “Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act" (the “Shield Act”), this new statute will be enforced by the New York Attorney General and mandates that a company must implement a number of “administrative, technical and physical safeguards” and appoint an employee to manage the cybersecurity program. Among other changes, the new law expands the definition of personal information and the definition of what constitutes a data breach. Failure to comply with this new statute authorizes the Attorney General to obtain statutory damages and the actual damages to consumers.
