Registration Now Available for “Trade Secrets: The New Frontier in a Changing IP Landscape”
Trade secrets have become increasingly important to companies worldwide as a way to protect valuable business methods, information, formulas, and innovations not squarely protected by patents and other forms of intellectual property rights. Accordingly, IIPI and Bloomberg BNA have teamed up to offer “Trade Secrets: The New Frontier in a Changing IP Landscape.”
The faculty presenting this conference will teach corporate counsel and attorneys who represent innovation-based companies about protecting trade secrets as well as the pros and cons of claiming trade secret rights instead of patent or other intellectual property protection. They will address existing trade secret laws, the proposed federal trade secret law, and strategies and tips for creating policies and procedures for the workplace and the employment relationship. IIPI’s General Counsel, Richard Litman, will speak about the differences between trade secret and patent protection, the benefits of trade secrets over patents and the risks if trade secrets are claimed and patent rights are not pursued.
The event will be held on December 3, 2014 in New York City. Up to 6.5 CLE credits are available.
