Exclusive Q&A with the NY AG's Office

iMedia Connection - April 26, 2006 A Chapell Article
The New York Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer, is often at the forefront of legal issues relating to technology, marketing and the internet. As head of the Internet Bureau of the NY Attorney General's office, Ken Dreifach has been deeply involved in these issues for several years. In his last days working for Mr. Spitzer, Dreifach sat down with Alan Chapell to discuss the legal issues facing the online media world.

Their discussion began with the broad idea of "agency," as Dreifach describes how advertisers, email marketers and others in the online space might be held accountable for the actions of their business partners. Touching upon adware, email and affiliate networks, Chapell and Dreifach muse on policing agents, how online marketing will develop and grow, and the costs of developing the necessary infrastructure. They also discuss digital rights management (DRM) and best practices for disclosing the "essence of the bargain" to consumers in a clear and concise way. Read the interview here.
