Business Law

Intellectual property

Description:

The 2018 TBA Business Law Forum will focus on emerging technologies that are affecting, or will soon affect, business lawyers across Tennessee. It will include an introduction to distributed ledger technology, including the blockchain, and a discussion of how this technology is being applied to transform electronic record-keeping in a variety of fields.  The forum will also address cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, and “initial coin offerings” of virtual currencies. Sessions will be dedicated to the public policy and regulatory implications of distributed ledger technology and virtual currencies, as well as the ethical implications for business lawyers whose practices intersect with these technologies. The forum is designed both for lawyers who are dealing with these cutting-edge technologies every day in their practices and those who are simply interested in becoming more knowledgeable about them.
