If you are, you should know about The Sedona Conference. “The Sedona Conference exists to allow leading jurists, lawyers, experts, academics and others, at the cutting edge of issues in the area of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights, to come together - in conferences and mini-think tanks (Working Groups) - and engage in true dialogue, not debate, all in an effort to move the law forward in a reasoned and just way.”

What’s important for records management, however, are two of their FREE publications:
The Sedona Guidelines: Best Practice Guidelines & Commentary for Managing Information & Records in the Electronic Age. September 2005 version is available at: http://www.thesedonaconference.org/dltForm?did=TSG9_05.pdf. The Sedona Principles: Best Practices Recommendations & Principles for Addressing Electronic Document Production The January 2004 version can be found at: http://www.thesedonaconference.org/dltForm?did=7_05TSP.pdf. You have to register, but the publications can be downloaded for free. According to a corporate records manager here in Cleveland, they are very useful.
