MAW learned Monday that Distil Networks — a leader in bot detection and mitigation — will participate in a panel at SXSWi on Tuesday morning.
If you’re not familiar, SXSWi is a five-day technology-focused branch of South by Southwest that serves as an incubator of cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity.
At the show, Distil Networks’ CEO, Rami Essaid, and Director of Product Marketing, Orion Cassetto, will participate in a panel discussion titled, “Digital Content and the Legality of Web Scraping” (web scraping is the process of using bots to systematically lift content from a website).
Other panel participants include Jonathan Bailey, Owner of CopyBytes and Katie Sunstrom, Attorney at Lorance & Thompson, PC.
“In this lively conversation, diverse panelists will discuss the origin of web scraping, the changing legal landscape, and the ethical and practical best practices for protecting your website content,” a statement provided to MAW reads.
