The Sharing Economy

Sharing Economy LawOne of the most exciting and legally-interesting developments in recent years has been the emergence of “the sharing economy.”

From AirBnB to Zipcar, society is fundamentally reconsidering old ideas about property, ownership, access, and more.

We’re thrilled to bring together leading thinkers and practitioners in this area for a discussion of emerging legal issues in the sharing economy!

Panel: Emerging Legal Issues in the Sharing Economy

Check out this fantastic panel (eligible for one hour of California MCLE credit):

  • Neal Gorenflo: Co-Founder and Publisher of Shareable
  • April Rinne: Chief Strategy Officer of Collaborative Lab
  • Nick Aster: Founder of Triple Pundit
  • Inder Comar: Founder of Comar Law, author of “New Approaches to Intellectual Property,” published in Practicing Law in the Sharing Economy, American Bar Association 2012
  • Vincent Cannon: Davis Polk Associate
  • Sushil Jacob: Skadden Fellow and Staff Attorney at the East Bay Community Law Center
