Mulgrew, Hamilton and Turner Host Panel on Internet of Things at Georgetown Law

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Seattle Partner John Mulgrew and Washington D.C. Associates Monplaisir Hamilton and John Turner discuss “The Internet of Things: Current and Future Trends” on Tuesday, June 23 at the Georgetown University Law Center. Shook is co-sponsoring the event with Georgetown University Law Center.

While the Internet of Things (IOT) movement has great potential to have a significant impact on the way people, businesses and governments interact and how they use technology to foster innovation and improve efficiency, there are still a lot of questions to answer.

The one-day event begins with an introduction into IOT and then covers the background of IOT including its many uses; government regulation, data privacy and security and intellectual property; and the future of IOT.

Mulgrew, Hamilton and Turner are joined by a business attorney in Microsoft’s Internet of Things and Wearable Computer divisions, the Director of Inventor Education, Outreach, and Recognition in the Office of Innovation Development at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Majority Counsel to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, a senior attorney in the Federal Trade Commission’s Division of Privacy and Identity Protection and the founding Executive Director of Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy & Technology.
