This session will examine a series of cutting-edge issues associated with IoT. It will consider the legal implications of collecting and using data from IoT devices for monetization and other purposes. Today, a wide range of companies are now interested in leveraging the consumer data which their products and services generate.  Examples go beyond voice activated products, such as Alexa, to include smart refrigerators, toys, and connected cars. How should companies manage the resulting data repositories?  How should companies comply with inevitable outside requests, from government and private parties, for this information?
