Program Summary

Data scraping, which may be legal or illegal, is the process of utilizing software to extract swaths of valuable data, usually from a website or across multiple websites. In turn, this data is utilized often times without the knowledge or consent of individuals. The purpose of this webinar is to gain an understanding of data scraping, how the data is utilized downstream, as well as legal and ethical pitfalls to avoid.

Attendees will gain a nuanced understanding of the ethical challenges posed by bias in data scraping and AI algorithms, as well as the interplay between ethical standards and the Computer Fraud Waste and Abuse Act. Through expert-led discussions and analysis, attorneys will emerge equipped with the knowledge and strategies needed to navigate these complex ethical landscapes effectively.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Appreciate what data scraping is and the line between legal and illegal application
  • Learn how data scraping is utilized in algorithms, which can render bias in generative AI
  • Understand how different laws, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and government enforcement can be triggered
