Sullivan & Worcester hosted a seminar, "Privacy and Data Security Issues Related to Marketing to Minors," sponsored by the Federal Communications Bar Association's Privacy & Data Security Committee and the Young Lawyers Committee. The event took place on May 19, 2010 in the firm's Washington, D.C. office.

Topic: A host of federal and state laws govern the protection of privacy and the security of personally identifiable information of minors collected and/or used for advertising or promotional purposes. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Michigan and Utah’s Child Protection Registries, and increased scrutiny of the FTC, FCC, State Attorneys General and legislators across the country all create a complex regulatory and enforcement landscape for media and communications companies and their clients wishing to reach children, tweens and teens via email, twitter, text messages and new emerging technology.

Speakers: FCC and FTC personnel, and select speakers from media and communications companies, trade associations, public interest groups and law firms
