During the first week of October 2013, Internet attorney Charles Mudd Jr. attended the International Technology Law Association’s (iTechLaw) 2013 European Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. As the newly-appointed Chair of iTechLaw’s Social Media and Gaming Committee, Charles presided over the committee’s business meeting and discussion of plans for the upcoming year.
Beyond the Social Media & Gaming Committee meeting, Charles attended a number of informative programs on Internet and technology related legal topics. In particular, he attended an interactive program on liability of intermediaries for content posted and/or published by their customers online. During this program, he interacted with international colleagues on the appropriateness (or lack thereof) of immunity under § 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
Returning from the iTechLaw European Conference, Charles explained that “the interaction with leading Internet and technology lawyers from across the world benefits my practice, the resources available to my clients, and the broader development of consistent international policies.”
