A pre-recorded streaming video replay from the April 2017 webcast, Analyzing Commonplace IP Scenarios.

Topics covered include:

  • See how intellectual property (“IP”) specialists analyze and handle commonplace IP scenarios that often arise in business contexts
  • Learn some IP law basics along the way
  • Learn IP strategies and best practices to optimize your clients’ outcomes

This seminar is designed for business attorneys and commercial litigators whose primary expertise is not in intellectual property. In the process of analyzing common IP scenarios, some basics of intellectual property law will be discussed. The speakers, both expert IP practitioners, will provide their views on strategy and best practices that arise during these.

The program is built upon a multi-stage hypothetical that traces a tech company from founding, through growth issues, product development and launch, dealing with competitors and knock-offs, and will include pre-IP-litigation planning. It will touch on issues such as:

Assessing a typical venture’s position in the “Big Four” IP rights: patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets

Assessing the IP rights of individual participants in a venture, including eventual defectors

Patenting mistakes that have consequences later, and dealing with the patents of others

Dealing with product knockoffs

Brand selection, maintaining brand power through watching and policing, and dealing with trademark infringers and cybersquatters

Trade secret early identification and proactive protection

Avoiding sewing copyright infringements and weaknesses into new products

Pre-litigation positioning, especially in patent, trademark, and trade secret cases
