Use Technology To Reduce Your Legal Costs

By Uncategorized

Yes. That’s right. I’m suggesting that you consider doing some of your own legal work where (1) you know what you’re doing, (2) the work is repetitive, and (3) you save money by doing it.

If one or more of these three elements are missing, get your attorney involved. In fact, you may want to have your lawyer help you set up your do-it-yourself systems in the beginning.

This article by Peter Page in the National Law Journal discussing how Cisco Systems does it may provide you with some ideas.

State Tries To Regulate Social Networking Sites

By Internet Lawyer

If you’re marketing on MySpace.com or other social networking sites, or even running such a site, note that Connecticut lawmakers are trying to pass a bill that requires age verification and parental consent to protect minors.

There’s also a bill before Congress that proposes the creation of a separate office within the FTC to deal with Internet pedophiles.

The goal of protecting children from online predators is laudable. In fact, I just agreed today to do some legal work for a related project.

However, tech inept politicians rarely legislate anything that it logistically feasible.

Pay close attention to these legislative efforts and comply with them. The penalties for violating such will be draconian in the interests of “protecting the children.”
