Partner at Farella Braun + Martel
Alex Reese is a partner at the law firm Farella Braun + Martel, specializing in representing individuals and companies of all sizes on technology-related disputes. He has counseled more than a dozen data analytics companies regarding the scope of anti-scraping laws and is frequently adverse to large technology platforms in negotiating his clients’ rights to use and analyze data. He also regularly represents startups, company founders, venture capital firms, and other privately held companies on a wide range of matters.
This presentation will provide an overview of the main law that U.S. companies use to combat scraping—the Computer Fraud & Abuse Act (the CFAA). The law firm where Alex works represented hiQ Labs in the groundbreaking hiQ Labs v. LinkedIn case, which significantly restricted the ability of companies to use the CFAA to prevent the scraping of publicly available data. Alex will discuss that case, what it means for scraping companies, implications for scraping data “behind the password” wall, and other recent cases addressing the scope of the CFAA.

Overview of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act;
Explanation of hiQ labs v. LinkedIn case (round 1);
Clarification of a possible outcome of hiQ Labs v. LinkedIn after Van Buren SCOTUS decision + Sandvig v. Barr;
