PLI's IP Law Institute
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 treat the antitrust-IP interface; whether copyright has become untethered from its constitutional moorings; the interplay among trade dress, design patents, and copyright (and what happened in Apple v. Samsung); trade secrets developments; recent developments in privacy law; a trademark law update; and ethics (one full hour 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 IP licensing in the US, India, and Europe (including developments in the European unitary patent); effects of the AIA on both prosecution and litigation; a copyright update and discussion of grey market law; aesthetic functionality; and trademark licenses in bankruptcy.
Paul Hastings partner Vicki Cundiff is a featured speaker on "Trade Secrets Law Developments."
