Partner Peter Vogel Contributes to Dallas Morning News Article

09.06.11

The Dallas Morning News recently reached out to Gardere's Peter Vogel to discuss the prevalence of privacy concerns with regard to social media. According to Mr. Vogel, "Because social media users almost never read the terms of service and privacy policies, they have no idea that they are licensing the sites to free, unfettered use of photographs, email addresses, names and contact information that they intended for personal friends, children and neighbors."

Mr. Vogel is a litigation partner at Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, where he is chair of the Electronic Discovery Group and chair of the Internet, eCommerce and Technology Industry Team. Before practicing law, Mr. Vogel was a systems programmer on mainframes, received a masters in computer science and taught graduate courses in information systems and operations research.

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.
