PLSC assembles privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. It brings together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government).
PLSC is a paper workshop. There are no published proceedings, and after the event, papers are not available. Because authors’ drafts are works in progress, we do not publicly release these writings, nor do we publicize them (no Tweeting, blogging, etc.), as authors’ ideas are often inchoate and need incubation for full development.
At PLSC, papers workshops are led by a “commenter” who facilitates a discussion among participants on an author’s paper. Authors are encouraged to participate in “listening” mode. There are no panels or talking head events at PLSC.

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision in Alice v. CLS Bank and its denial of Google’s petition for certiorari in the Oracle software copyright case, new uncertainties exist about the roles that patents and copyrights are and should be playing in the legal protection of computer software.
The Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, in conjunction with the Berkeley Technology Law Journal, hosted a symposium on April 14-15, 2016, in Berkeley, to consider the implications of the Alice and Oracle decisions, among others, on the software industry. It brought together law and economics scholars, industry representatives, and practicing lawyers to consider what the courts are getting right and wrong and how intellectual property law ought to evolve to do a better job for the industry and the public that so depends on software these days.
The symposium also included sessions on the roles of trade secrecy and trademark laws, as well as patents and copyrights. Also featured was empirical research on the state of the software industry and the roles of IP rights and business models on which software developers rely beyond IP.
