Protecting Intellectual Property in the Post-AIA World

Over the past few years, trade secrets have gained stature as a means to protect intellectual property in America. With the continuing pressure on patent protection, the ever-increasing ease of copying and misappropriating information, and the creation of new trade secret laws in the United States, the importance of understanding and successfully implementing trade secret protection has never been more important. Please join us for a webinar discussing recent developments in trade secret law and the steps that should be taken to ensure your secrets remain protected. Topics that will be discussed include:

• The overlap between trade secret protection and patent protection

• Best practices for protecting information from misappropriation

• Successfully licensing trade secret information

• Trends in the application of the Defend Trade Secrets Act that created a federal cause of action for trade secret misappropriation
