Business has moved far beyond the tangible brick, mortar and widget model. There is no dispute that intellectual property, although intangible, now has real value. The ability to demand licence fees and exclude competitors with effective enforcement programs is an important asset. Capitalizing on IP assets requires (1) distinguishing among species of IP, (2) taking steps to protect and enforce it, and (3) avoiding liability for infringement.
Please join our experienced panel:
Dominique Hussey, Partner and Chair, Intellectual Property Litigation Group
Trent Horne, Partner, Intellectual Property Litigation Group
for a discussion of:
- What every business needs to know about trademarks, patents, copyright and trade secrets to capitalize on IP assets;
- How to secure appropriate protection of IP assets and contain risk; and
- Important court decisions and recent judicial trends.
This course is appropriate for general or corporate counsel not routinely involved in intellectual property prosecution or litigation.
This event is also being offered as a WebEx webinar.
