You've heard about the cloud, but what is it exactly? Simply put, someone else's computer. Or rather, computer farm. The cloud allows you to store and access a virtually unlimited amount of information remotely, without having to build up any of the infrastructure on your own.
The cloud isn't just going to transform the way people work, it already has. But the cloud also poses major legal questions. For example, how should attorneys apportion risk when negotiating cloud contracts? What privacy rights are afforded to documents stored in the cloud? Does information uploaded to the cloud count as an export?
