Erik Olson and Stephanie Skaff discuss "Platform Ecosystems: Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and Other Scraping Law Developments."
Web scraping has existed as long as the World Wide Web has, and as data has become the coin of the realm, data creators and aggregators have had more reason to fight with scrapers over what data is fair game and what isn’t, and so the laws pertaining to scraping have continued to evolve. Join us as we discuss the current state of the law including:
