My colleague Art Stein and I will be speaking on Thursday, April 12th at 12:30 p.m. at the Columbus Intellectual Property Law Association’s April Meeting for the presentation, “The America Invents Act, The Economic Espionage Act and Other Tumultuous Developments in Patent and Trade Secret Litigation.”   

This will be the fifth year in a row that Art and I have spoken together at CIPLA and it is truly one of my favorite presentations of the year. Some of the topics we will address will include:
  • Identifying some of the most noteworthy changes to U.S. patent and trade secret law as a result of the America Invents Act (AIA) and how it may affect the strength and the versatility of trade secret protection;
  • Discussing how the interplay between trade secret and patent prosecution may shift under the AIA;
  • Providing insights on likely changes to both patent and trade secret practice as the new provisions of the AIA come fully into effect; and
  • Addressing other major developments in patent and trade secret litigation, including recent developments under the Economic Espionage Act and other relevant trade secret statutes.
Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. I have attached a brochure with additional details for the presentation in a PDF below. 
Art and I hope to see you there.
