Do you ever wonder what happens to your personal information when you shop online, submit a LinkedIn or Facebook profile or post a comment on Twitter? What intellectual property laws may be involved or how the behavior of others online impact your privacy and intellectual property rights? This panel will try to uncover the mysteries of the Internet as they relate to our everyday interactions online, including engaging in online retail activity or participating in social media. The panelists will discuss how personal information is transmitted and stored online; potential risks when engaging in Internet-based activity; and provide suggestions for protecting your personal information and intellectual property rights, as well as those of others online.

When & Where
Metropolitan Black Bar Association
The purpose of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association (MBBA), a unified citywide association of African-American and other minority lawyers, is to advance equality and excellence in the pursuit of justice, aid the progress of Blacks and other minorities in the profession, address legal issues affecting the citywide community, and foster the study of law by encouraging the personal and professional development of young lawyers and law students.
Founded on July 5, 1984, the Metropolitan Black Bar Association was created from the merger of the Harlem Lawyers Association, founded in 1921 and the Bedford Stuyvesant Lawyers Association, founded in 1933. As one of the largest organizations of Black attorneys in New York State, the MBBA continues the rich legacy of its two predecessor organizations by providing a voice for Black legal professionals in the communities it serves.
Today, the MBBA is comprised of mostly minority attorneys in large and small law firms, solo practitioners, all levels of government, academia, corporations, financial institutions, not-for-profit organizations and the judiciary.
