IPO IP Chat Channel - Compulife: Datascraping and Trade Secret Law


On September 8, Fish principal David Conrad will participate on a panel hosted by the IPO Chat Channel. The title of the presentation is Compulife:Datascraping and Trade Secret Law. The panelists will discuss:

  • Whether this case offers website publishers a new arrow in the quiver to combat unwanted website scrapers beyond "typical" claims under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and a contract claim for breach of the underlying terms of service.
  • Other important cases involving datascraping including Van Buren v. U.S (recently granted certiorari before the U.S. Supreme Court), HiQ v. LinkedIn (cert petition pending), and Digidrill v. Petrolink (5th Circ., July 2020).

David provides legal services to clients in matters relating to business, patent, and trade secret litigation, focusing on technologies used in e-commerce and web site systems, computer network architecture, and computer software.
