Subject: [Random-bits] ALI meeting on Hague Convention

Apparently this afternoon the American Law Institute will have a
Washington, DC discussion about the Hague Convention on Foreign
Judgements, a topic that has never been discussed in any US news article
that I have read.   As indicated in an earlier note
(http://www.cptech.org/ecom/hague-march-2000.html), the proposed treaty
would create mechanism to govern the recognition and collection of
foreign judgments, including, for example, foreign judgments against US
citizens for libel, slander, copyright infringement, fraud, and just
about anything else that could be the subject to private litigation.  
The potential impact and exposure for internet related activities is
enormous, and essentially unknown and yet to be discussed by anyone but
a handful of experts.    Jamie
