To SaaS or not to SaaS for your next ediscovery project?


If you are like most of us, you are constantly reevaluating your ediscovery work flow.  When you do this you want to know “is my software current enough?” and “is my hosting vendor charging me current market rates or last years per gig rates?” If you have started to rethink what you are doing, you likely are about to consider the new ediscovery Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings.  A SaaS offering means your provider is renting you a hosted environment (virtual sever, cloud storage etc.) along with their ediscovery software.  The rest is up to you.  That is, you have to get your data onto this hosted environment, process it, review it, make a production (if your SaaS software has that capability and that’s a big if) and then get your production off your SaaS platform and into the hands of client and/or opposing counsel.  There is also another flavor of this, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), where your provider only provides you the remote hosted environment and you license ediscovery software from someone else to put on their hardware.  However, I am going to focus on SaaS today

NPE Gets Aggressive - Patent Troll Guilty of Racketeering


A well-known name in this patent troll mess is Innovatio IP Ventures, who after purchasing old Broadcom patents related to Wi-Fi technology, went on the offensive against users of this technology. In 2011, Innovatio had bought some older Broadcom patents, and then targeted coffee shops, supermarkets, retailers, hotels and other businesses that used the wireless routers with over 13,000 patent demand letters asking them to pay licensing fees of up to $5,000.

Technology, ediscovery and Your Ethical Obligations

IT_Lex Speakers Baron, Grossman, Losey

Rapid changes in cloud computing and social media are posing new challenges to the practice of law.  Consider for a moment the questions brought before legal and e-discovery
experts at the recent IT-Lex Conference in Winter Park:  Can a law firm host client data in the cloud? Is it wise for an attorney to ‘friend’ a witness on Facebook?  Can a company claim ownership of the LinkedIn relationships created by employees?

The first annual IT-Lex Innovate Conference, held October 16th
and 17th,  brought together a remarkable group of judges and experts in electronic discovery, document analytics, predictive coding, social media, and information privacy to explore
these and other timely issues in a series of panel discussions. 

A common theme across the day and a half was that it is the ethical obligation of every practicing attorney to understand the basics of the technology environment in which his or her client operates.  Further, attorneys involved in litigation or investigations that include electronic discovery are obligated to understand the specific processes of collecting, reviewing and producing documents in digital form.
