Product Description:

Intellectual property law continues to evolve and shift. Last year saw many substantial changes, from the enactment of a Federal trade secrets act; to U.S. Supreme Court and other appellate decisions that made large impacts on copyright, trademark, and patent law; to a significant shift in the success rate of post-grant patent challenges at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The materials from the WSBA IP Section’s 22nd Annual Intellectual Property Institute will cover these and other important developments, with knowledge from regionally and nationally prominent intellectual property practitioners including:

  • The latest developments in patent law and post-grant practice at the USPTO
  • The latest developments in copyright and trademark law
  • An in-depth update on post-grant practice at the USPTO
  • An in-depth overview of the recently enacted Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act
  • An in-depth overview of the data privacy & cybersecurity laws and why they matter to the IP Practitioner
  • Ethics pointers from nationally recognized IP Ethics practitioners
