u_Lecture: 'Geospatial Information Licenses for Non-Lawyers' - Feb 1.

This UNIGIS Webinar by Kevin D. Pomfret will be held on Wed, Feb 1, 2017 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM CET - Registration (free)

Kevin D. Pomfret
The geospatial community (government agencies, industry, universities, NGO's) are increasingly creating geospatial products and services by aggregating a wide range of datasets from a variety of sources. In many instances this data is licensed from one party to another, not sold. A geospatial information license does more than transfer rights in geospatial information from one party to another. It is a legal document that allocates operational and legal risks associated with geospatial information between the parties. This UNIGIS u_lecture is intended to help non-lawyers within the geospatial community better understand geospatial information licenses. It will describe the key provisions of a license and how they relate to geospatial information. The goal is to help geospatial professionals understand the rights and obligations that they are agreeing to abide by in entering into a geospatial information license.

Mr. Pomfret is a corporate partner at the Williams Mullen law firm and co-chair of the firm’s Unmanned Systems practice group and the Data Protection and Cybersecurity practice group. He is also the founder and Executive Director of the Centre for Spatial Law and Policy. He counsels businesses and government agencies on the policy and legal issues that impact the collection, use, storage and distribution of geospatial information, such as licensing, privacy and data protection, data quality and liability and regulatory matters. Mr. Pomfret regularly speaks on around the globe on these issues. He began his career as a satellite imagery analyst where he helped to develop imagery collection strategies and identify requirements for future collection systems. He is a member of the U.S. National Geospatial Advisory Committee. Mr. Pomfret is a graduate of Bates College and Washington, Lee School of Law.
