Hot Issues in Intellectual Property Law: Essential Knowledge for Guiding Technology CompaniesPlease join the General Counsel Committee for an executive briefing on the hottest patent, copyright, and data rights issues affecting technology companies today. Our experts will brief you on issues you must know about to protect your company’s intellectual property and shelter your company from liability.
Our panel of experts will address:
- Patent eligibility: Is software still going to be patentable? Panelists will discuss the future of patents on computer-implemented inventions after the Federal Circuit’s en banc argument in CLS Bank Int’l v. Alice Corp.
- The America Invents Act: Lessons learned since implementation of the first-to-file regime and the new procedures for post-issuance challenges.
- Copyright: The potential application of the first sale doctrine to software and the impact of the Supreme Court decision in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on the importation of software distributed abroad.
- Intellectual Property Data Rights for Software and Technical Data: Could your sales to the U.S. Government lead to your intellectual property being lost to competitors through planned changes to the regulations governing technical data and computer software?
