eDiscovery Daily Blog

Eight is Great! eDiscovery Daily is Eight Years Old!

As a loving husband, it’s a bad thing to forget an anniversary.  Thankfully, I forgot the other one.

Holy $#*%@!  I can’t believe I missed the anniversary for the blog!  It snuck up on me.  Anyway, believe it or not, it has been eight years ago last Thursday since we launched the eDiscovery Daily blog!

We launched eight years ago on September 20, 2010.  Back then, we told you to not get “wild” with wildcards and published our first case law post about a case where the spoliator of data was actually threatened with jail time –  our first of 640 posts about case law to date, covering more than 500 distinct cases!  We’ve published over 2,101 lifetime posts, and every post is still available on the site for your reference.  We’re eight, but we’re not behind the eight ball!

As always, we have you to thank for all of that success!  Thanks for making the eDiscovery Daily blog a regular resource for your eDiscovery news and analysis!  We really appreciate the support!

As many of you know by now, we like to take a look back every six months at some of the important stories and topics during that time.  So, here are some posts over the last few months you may have missed.  Enjoy!

OK, let me get this straight: Twitter doesn’t have custody and control over its own direct messages?

Are private Facebook photos discoverable in a personal injury case?  Depends on which court you ask.

Talk about fingering a suspect!  Cops are now opening iPhones with dead people’s fingerprints.

Do you watch movies and TV shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime?  Or, listen to music on Pandora or Spotify?  Then, you may be a user of predictive coding technology and not realize it.

What happens in the Internet each minute in 2018? More than ever.

More than two thirds of data breaches take months to discover.

If you use “sock puppet” accounts to try to defame the author whose copyrighted book you infringed and try to hide it, you might get sanctioned.

What percentage of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests actually result in receiving all of the information requested? 75 percent? 50 percent? You might be surprised.

Can you still be sanctioned after a jury verdict?  Better believe it.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming the practice of law, but could it (finally) spell the end of the billable hour?

Are you “primed” to learn best practices for handling social media?  The Sedona Conference® can help!

2018 is certainly on its way to becoming the year of data privacy rights for the individual – especially in California.

Public or private cloud isn’t the only question you should be asking about a cloud solution, you could have as many as three providers associated with your solution.  Do you know how to evaluate them?

Does accessing historical records containing the physical locations of cellphones without a search warrant violate the Fourth Amendment?  Let’s ask SCOTUS!

Over the past few years, private equity firms have invested in over a dozen eDiscovery companies (including this one).

Leave it to Craig Ball to come up with a sensible forensic examination protocol that you can use and learn from.

This is just a sampling of topics that we’ve covered.  Hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks for the interest you’ve shown in the topics!  We will do our best to continue to provide interesting and useful eDiscovery news and analysis.  And, as always, please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic!  On to 9 years!  (Cloud)Nine will be divine!  :o)
