The North Carolina Bar Committee reviewing the appropriateness of "cloud computing" has posted an Opinion for Comment which is posted on line courtesy of Stephanie Kimbro.  There are two parts to the Opinion. The first part leaves the issue of Cloud Computing to the law firm, leaving to the attorney to use his or her judgment in protecting client confidentiality and client data. The section part of the Opinion lists "best practices" for the use of Software as  a Service (SaaS), which are likely to be further refined by both comments and a review by a subcommittee.The proposed opinion will be published in the next issue of The State Bar Journal.
