These corporations also face class action lawsuits in the United States.

The Knowledge Congress is producing a two-hour teleconference and webinar aiming to discuss the important aspects, as well as the impact of this joint undertaking to affected industries. Industry experts and government regulators are scheduled to speak in this event.
