Associate Professor of Law Julian Velasco presented a session entitled “iPad: The Academic Workstation” where he discussed how the iPad transformed the way in which he works and teaches.

Associate General Counsel to the University of Notre Dame and Concurrent Assistant Professor of Law Timothy Flanagan discussed legal and policy considerations related to the use of personal devices in the workplace in “BYOD: Your Device, but Whose Information?” He also offered an overview of the interaction between copyright law, policy, and contract in the ownership of software code in his presentation, “Breaking the Code: Who Owns Rights in Software?” and explored copyright and other legal considerations related to incorporating digital content in mobile services in “Cleared for Takeoff: Rights Management in Digital Content.”
