Privacy and Intellectual Property in the Age of Coronavirus
September 17, 2020
Institute for Privacy Protection and the Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology.
The COVID-19 pandemic poses significant challenges to our privacy and intellectual property regimes. Seton Hall Law’s Institute for Privacy Protection and Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology invite you to join panel discussions with legal academics, practitioners, and government officials to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on privacy and intellectual property. Efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic can impact privacy rights of patients, those at risk, and the general population. Panel One will include topics addressing: What are the duties of healthcare providers to report patients' COVID-19 information? How should governments track infected individuals and others at high-risk? How secure are databases containing COVID-19 information? Patenting drugs and vaccines incentivizes innovation, but patents increase prices and affect availability. Panel Two will discuss the options of patenting COVID-19 drugs and vaccines as well as other alternatives pertinent in times of health emergencies, including compulsory licenses, voluntary licenses, and patent pools.

School Outreach Program
The Institute for Privacy Protection has developed a school outreach program that will focus on raising awareness and good decision making related to personal privacy and social media. Our school outreach curriculum will focus on elementary and middle school children in New Jersey and Manhattan. The curriculum includes the following topics: Introduction to Privacy, Digital Footprint and Reputation, Ads and Content, and Balancing Time Online vs. Offline. We anticipate that our outreach program will reach over 200 elementary and middle school children by the summer of 2018 in New Jersey and New York.
