We are excited to announce that Eric Goldman, Professor of Law at Santa Clara University School of Law, will keynote this year's Marketplace Risk Management Conference (SF, May 16-18) with, How the Internet Improves Humanity. We are beyond ecstatic to welcome Professor Goldman!
Professor Goldman is an expert in Internet law, intellectual property and advertising & marketing law, which he regularly writes about in his extremely popular Technology & Marketing Law Blog. He is widely known for his thought-provoking and insightful analysis of legal issues that have been driven by the digital age. Professor Goldman started practicing Internet law in 1994, and he taught his first course on the subject in 1996. With his extensive knowledge and experience, he has become a leading authority on the legal issues that shape our online lives, and his work has had a significant impact on the development of Internet law in the United States and beyond.
In addition to being a legal scholar, avid blogger and media commentator, Professor Goldman has testified before Congress on a variety of Internet-related issues, including the Consumer Review Fairness Act, Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA), and Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA). He is a founding director of the Trust & Safety Professional Association and the Trust & Safety Foundation. Wired had this to say about Professor Goldman:
"One man who has had an outsize effect on the way Section 230 is treated in public discussion is Eric Goldman, a professor at Santa Clara University School of Law, where he codirects the High Tech Law Institute. He is also a prolific blogger, keeping seemingly exhaustive tabs on the latest developments in internet law, including rulings involving Section 230. Goldman has been writing about this area for so long that the Stratton Oakmont ruling, which Section 230 was created to overturn, cites a paper he published in 1993 while still in law school….
He has for years been journalists’ go-to source on all things Section 230. He’s a reporter’s dream: encyclopedically knowledgeable, articulate, personable, and easy to get on the phone."
We are excited to welcome Professor Goldman to the 2023 Marketplace Risk Management Conference!
