Antigone Peyton

Intellectual Property and Technology Law chair Antigone Peyton will serve as a panelist on the upcoming ABA CLE webinar on Thursday, August 3rd, “Smart Speakers as Discoverable Evidence: Helper or Witness for the Prosecution?”  Smart speakers produced by Amazon, Apple, and Google have become the latest craze for tech-savvy homeowners. These Internet of Things (IoT) devices are contributing to big data, meaning everything you do or say can be retrieved. Electronics that monitor consumers are not only providing unexpected evidence, but also allowing investigators to add discoverable data to their tool kits.  In this program, faculty will provide an overview of developing case law on discoverability.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Reasonable expectation of privacy
  • Admissibility of evidence
  • Defective or hacked software
  • Identifying and preserving data
  • Data collection and e-discovery issues

Registration is open to both ABA members and non-members.
