Intellectual property (IP) issues impact more clients and areas of law than you might realize! You may never before have had to deal with patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but with IP now constituting a substantial part of your business clients' assets, the odds are high that you may have to counsel your current and future clients in this area.
This basic program will provide general practitioners and others who do not concentrate in this area with an overview of the various aspects of intellectual property law. You'll learn how to identify what intellectual property needs to be protected and how to obtain these rights. You'll also find out how to defend your clients accused of infringing upon the rights of others. In addition, speakers will cover IP issues that arise in business transactions and licensing agreements, the Internet, and domain name issues.
