Cases including Glencore International AG & Ors v Commissioner of Taxation of the Commonwealth of Australia & Ors show that the ability to rely on LPP can depend on the steps taken and timing of those steps. It also highlights the adverse outcomes in a claim that can arise once information is in the public domain. What rights and remedies does a party have once the material is in the public domain?

The risk of loss of LPP may increase through greater reliance on technology. Particularly in the event of security breaches, staff access to and inadvertent sharing of information when working remotely and client sharing of information on social media.

What are the obvious risks through use of technology and how can those risks be minimised.

This session will outline the current legal position around LPP and highlight the particular risks regarding technology. It will also address the steps that should be taken to minimise those risks.
