  • Smart Cars and eDiscovery

    by Stephen Wu on August 16, 2012

    I heard an interesting radio show on NPR the other day. Auto manufacturers are rolling out the next generation of cars that try to implement the lessons the phone manufacturers learned from Apple, Google, and others. Let's put screens on cars, and give them apps, they say. Let's do for the car what iOS and Android did for phones and tablets. Cars dashboards should have apps, just like any other…

  • Social Media Privacy Legislation Update

    by Stephen Wu on May 30, 2012

    Back in March, I wrote about new legislation at the state level that would prohibit employers from asking job applicants for their social media user names and passwords.

The idea behind these laws is that when employers demand that a job applicant disclose his or…

    We have all seen stories about how social media accounts are treasure troves of information. In past years, legal experts have discussed the issue of whether employers should view social media information of prospective employees. Some employers are tempted by the amount of information available on these services to vet employees and obtain a much more candid view of what makes job applicants…

We also need more information sharing among private companies, hopefully without creating various kinds of liability—all for the sake of…

    eDiscovery rules, the law of spoliation, and evidence law now address electronically stored information (ESI). Courts and some commentators are now talking about the effect of the Internet, social networking, and cloud computing on eDiscovery and evidence law. Thus, the law is starting to catch up with the new reality of computers and the Internet. But is the legal profession catching up with this…

  • California Beefs Up Its Breach Notification Law

    by Stephen Wu on September 28, 2011

    Although we have an old cliché that says, “third time is the charm,” in the case of changing California’s breach notification law, State Senator Joe Simitian required four attempts to see the passage of his bill amending the law. On August 31, 2011, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill No. 24, a bill to enhance California’s breach notification law, S.B. 1386 from 2003. Former Governor Arnold…
