The "Internet of Things" is the term used to describe the networking of devices that have not traditionally been used to collect or process data. Internet connectivity and data collection mechanisms are being added to devices as diverse as pacemakers, athletic equipment, light bulbs, and coffee makers. As the networking of these devices becomes more prevalent in everyday life, legal and policy issues are now at the forefront of business and regulators' agendas. For example, the FTC and other government organizations have expressed concern over privacy, security, and even technological and financing considerations. This conference seeks to address these wide-ranging issues and explore the legal framework that can support innovation along with the protection of society.
