PLI's Intellectual Property Law Institute 2015
PLI’s Intellectual Property Law Institute is a “must-attend” program for IP lawyers. This program provides a complete analysis of key events in all areas of IP, providing updates on cases, legislation and government agency developments that IP lawyers need to know.
A highlight of the program will be a panel of in-house IP counsel from prominent companies discussing the many facets of current interest for dealing with IP and suggesting some best practices and strategies. Plenary sessions will address software and business method patents; IP in business transactions; trademark law update; modern fair use and it's impact on copyright; trade secrets update; IP monetization; and Ethics (one full hour of credit).
This year’s program will feature four breakout sessions, each with three current topics that will focus respectively on copyrights, licensing, patents, and trademarks. Among the breakout topics will be discussions of IPR procedures; copyright update; TTAB practice developments; and updates in U.S. licensing.
Paul Hastings partner Victoria Cundiff is a featured to discuss "The More Things Change, the More Bedrock Rules Matter: Applying Trade Secrets Rules to New Challenges" at 10:00 am.
