Blockchain Legal Risks

Gardere Webinar
04.26.17

Gardere attorneys Edward H. Block, Eric Levy and Peter S. Vogel presented the webinar titled “Blockchain Legal Risks.”

Many people are familiar with the online currency "bitcoin," but many do not understand that blockchain is the technology that permits the internet to have its own monetary system. In January 2017, the Food and Drug Administration signed a contract with IBM to utilize Watson (its artificial intelligence technology) to better protect electronic medical records using blockchain technologies. Since data may be stored on the cloud anywhere around the world, it is essential to understand the laws that apply to your own use of blockchain. This webinar will educate you on blockchain and offer some insights into what the future may bring to currency, contracts and cross-border transactions.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
