VIDEO – Cloud Contract Issues


The cloud is hot, and headline news around the world! The legal risks for businesses can be substantial and impact all cloud customers. To learn more, please watch my recent video interview entitled “Cloud Computing: New Buzzword, Longstanding Concerns.” The interview by Financial Management Network (& parent SmartPros Ltd.) is part of a series of educational videos provided for accounting, finance, and IT professionals. So please check out the programs on Financial Management Network.

No surprise that attorney/client privilege may be at risk on the cloud. So you may be interested to see a TexasBarCLE webcast entitled “What Using the Cloud Does to Attorney/Client Privilege” (available on the TexasBarCLE webcast archive). I was honored to serve on the panel  with Chris Kirby (PCT Solutions, Inc.) and Jeff Blake (Splunk), and the webcast was an interesting and in depth discussion about the impact of the cloud on lawyers and clients.

Of course I welcome any comments or thoughts about cloud legal issues.

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.


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.
