The legal frameworks for IoT are fragmented and in some areas outdated. If business intend to sell their IoT-devices globally it is challenging for them to identify all relevant laws and properly reflect them in the device. This is in particular true as various new laws and amendments to existing laws are underway and, once enacted, will have an impact on IoT devices. Jennifer Johnson, Yan Luo and Moritz Hüsch (partners in Covington’s Washington, Beijing and Frankfurt office) will provide you with an update on the recent legislative developments in the USA, China and European Union.

We are pleased to have the following speakers join our discussion:
