Yale Conference on Searching and Regulation

Regulating Search? is the first academic conference devoted to search engines and the law. The symposium will bring together technologists, policymakers, entrepreneurs, executives, lawyers, computer scientists, and activists to discuss the emerging field of search engine law. It will examine trends in litigation involving search engines, identify the interests that are implicated by the increasing legal control of search, and discuss appropriate public policy responses.

Looks interesting. But not nearly as interesting as when I thought it was going to be about searching for and within the law. That’s not even referred to, the assumption being, I suppose, that while there may be troubles pending for others because of search engines and corporate control, the law lies outside the problem and is, indeed, part of the solution.
