Alan Bruggeman of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment division speaking this week…and some preparatory reading

Alan Bruggeman is a Senior Attorney in Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment division. At Microsoft, Alan has provided legal counsel on a variety of entertainment devices and services, including the Xbox 360 console and accessories, the now-defunct (but still awesome) Zune media player, Microsoft Studios, and Xbox LIVE. Prior to his work at Microsoft, Alan worked as an associate at Seattle’s Preston Gates and Ellis (now K&L Gates). Alan received his J.D. from Columbia University.

We are very fortunate indeed to have Alan joining us in person this week. Alan will be driving up from Redmond, Washington Wednesday morning so we should appreciate him all the more. He will be covering a diverse range of topics including privacy, online safety and issues in and around the console universe.

In preparation for Alan’s talk please take a look through Sections 8, 10, 11(5) and any other anti-spyware provisions you identify, in CASL (“An Act to promote the efficiency and adaptability of the Canadian economy by regulating certain activities that discourage reliance on electronic means of carrying out commercial activities, and to amend the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Act, the Competition Act, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and the Telecommunications Act” – S.C. 2010, c. 23): http://lois-laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/AnnualStatutes/2010_23/FullText.html
