Yesterday, Helen Aston and I spoke at IT.Can’s The 2003 Information Technology Law Spring Forum. Our topic was Representations, Warranties and Indemnities (in IT transaction) – A Primer. The slides we used as a conversation starter are shown below.

Here are the slides used in my presentation to the Toronto Computer Lawyers Group earlier today, The Year in Review: Developments in Computer, Internet and E-Commerce Law (2009-2010). It covers significant developements since my talk last spring.
The slides include a summary of the following cases and statutory references:
Tercon Contractors Ltd. v. British Columbia, 2010 SCC 4
Internet Broadcasting Corporation Ltd. v Mar LLC  EWHC 844 (Ch)
Gammasonics Institute for Medical Research Pty Ltd v Comrad Medical Sysytems Pty Ltd  NSWSC 267 (9 April 2010)
Kingsway Hall Hotel Ltd. v Red Sky IT (Hounslow) Ltd.  EWHC 965
IT lawyers know all too well that IT contracts can go awry. That is why so much time is spent arguing about limits of liability during contract negotiations. A recent example is the BSkyb Ltd & Anor v HP Enterprise Services UK Ltd & Anor (Rev 1)  EWHC 86 (TCC) (26 January 2010) case where the UK court made a huge damage award against HP.
