Head of Matheson’s Technology Group to speak at San Francisco conference

PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Data Protection, Outsourcing and Contracted Services, Technology and Innovation, Telecommunications
DATE: 30.09.2013

The head of Matheson’s Technology and Commercial Contracts Group will speak at a major San Francisco conference on software agreements on 5 November 2013.

The Conference is organised by the American Conference Institute. It will focus on negotiating and drafting sophisticated agreements that achieve business and technical goals in the technology sector.

John O’Connor is the only speaker from the UK or Ireland. He said, “It’s an honour to be asked to speak at this event, one of the leading US conferences covering technology law and data protection. This is more evidence of the deepening links between Dublin and Silicon Valley and the increasing relevance and importance of European data protection and internet laws to US social media, e-commerce and technology companies which operate globally.”

John’s talk will cover a range of issues, including compliance with specific laws and regulations and incorporating private industry initiatives and standards into license agreements negotiations. John will also address data protection concerns in licenses that cross international borders and will examine disclosure and remediation requirements to address data security breaches.

John advises his clients in relation to systems implementations, outsourcing and services arrangements, cloud computing, licensing and re-seller arrangements, data protection, intellectual property and e-business. He is a frequent speaker at seminars and his work has been published in legal and business journals in the UK and Ireland. John is chair of the Irish division of the Society for Computers and Law.
