O’Melveny & Myers LLP Los Angeles partner Jeffrey Fowler was quoted in the April 25, 2012, article “Google Drive: Watch out, cloud computing in U.S. like 'Wild West',” which was published in the Los Angeles Times technology blog Tech Now. In light of the launch of Google Drive, Fowler, one of the founders and leaders of O’Melveny’s Electronic Discovery and Document Retention Practice, discusses the legal implications and issues associated with the technology.
"We in the law business are always chasing these technological developments," said Fowler. “Until the law catches up, he advised, a consumer really needs to be a good self-advocate, keeping track of terms of service and privacy policies. There is no easy way to wrap your arms around a cloud," Fowler continued. "The name is quite fitting. it will require a lot of creative thinking over the next few years."
