Chris Collins presents "Digital Pegs in Paper Holes" (C) 2013. A new framework for analyzing laws in the digital age

About the Webinar:  The digital age is upon us and its integration into nearly every aspect of society has created complexity and challenges to the integrity of the law. Courts are forced today to resolve legal disputes that are directly related to digital and virtual age technology using law that was created before such technology existed. This has created poor results and a conundrum for the law. Yet, within the legal community there is no consensus on how to resolve it.  While the debate lingers along mostly ideological lines, Chris Collins has developed a remarkable and pioneering new scientific approach to resolving this critical problem using theory of constraints! Chris Collins is the first to actually apply the theory of constraints analysis at this level to creating law! His intensive and committed research effort determined that the intersection of law and technology is actually a relationship of managing constraints! And by understanding that relationship, it becomes possible to build a framework to move past the debate on how the law should react to changes in technology and proactively begin to successfully draft a model for what the law should be in the digital age we live in.
