Majority of U.S. Consumers Feel Litigation Will Impede Innovation; Livestream Available for Today’s Event on Torts of the Future

ILR and the U.S. Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) will explore emerging technologies and discuss how harmful regulations and litigation can threaten innovation and negatively impact our economy at an event today, Emerging Technologies and Torts of the Future.

The entire event will be livestreamed here.

ILR also released a paper today, Torts of the Future: Addressing the Liability and Regulatory Implications of Emerging Technologies, that examines how courts and policymakers can address legitimate safety and privacy concerns around emerging technologies without derailing or delaying progress.

Additionally, a new public opinion poll from ILR found 77 percent of consumers believe that lawsuits aimed at emerging technologies, such as cars that operate without drivers, will impede – not advance – innovation.
