The IP Audit - How to Execute to Drive Value

The IP Audit - How to Execute to Drive Value

ABA-IPL Landslide® Webinar Series
Tuesday, December 12, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST
1.50 Non-ethics CLE Credit Hours

An intellectual property audit is a systematic analysis of an organization's IP assets that can undercover hidden risks, identify underutilized assets, and drive value enhancement. By understanding how to structure and execute a comprehensive IP audit, both in-house counsel and private practitioners can maximize client value from IP investments. A panel of IP experts will explore the process of IP audits and how to audit different categories of IP, including patents, trademarks and copyrights. Panelists will then highlight and discuss how results of an IP audit can be used to your client's benefit to enhance IP asset acquisition, support M&A and licensing activity, guide enforcement opportunities, and help manage overall IP spend.

New Expressions: 3D Printing & the Changing IP Landscape

New Expressions: 3D Printing & the Changing IP Landscape

Friday, December 15, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST
1.50 General CLE Credit Hours

Until now, a company's product cycle involved a familiar timeline of discrete milestones: design, prototyping, production, launch, supply chain management, etc. 3D printing and scanning is transforming how businesses bring their products to market, by collapsing these distinct phases into one fluid spectrum. Because 3D printing and scanning blur the lines between application and expression, these technologies raise a host of IP legal issues. There are few guideposts that can serve as reliable indicators of how existing law will treat these innovations, however it is not clear which practitioners will be liable – the printer, the seller, the manufacture, etc. This program will review the current state of the art and explore many of the copyright issues that 3D printing and scanning may implicate, including the useful article doctrine; the derivative work right; fair use; secondary liability; the anti-circumvention and safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; and recent Supreme Court cases on design patent protection and the scope of copyright in 3D objects.
