Spring Institute 2010

March 26-27, 2010
Sir Francis Drake:
450 Powell Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

This year NOCALL turns 30 and to celebrate the Spring Institute Committee is pleased to present Piracy on the Barbary Coast: From Pillaging on the High Seas to Plundering on the Net. Today piracy includes not only abduction on the seas but abductions of all sorts, from copyright and trademark infringement to cybersquatting and identity theft. In addition to the substantive programming, we are hosting a Friday night cocktail celebration to mark NOCALL’s Pearl Anniversary in Harry Denton’s Starlight Room at the top of the hotel.

We look forward to seeing you there!
