LACBA Plans Program On IP Law

Saturday, April 1, 2006 - 01:00

What Every Corporate Lawyer Should Know Regarding Intellectual Property Law is the title of a CLE program presented by the Business & Corporations Law Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA).

The program will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 27 at Le Merigot Hotel, 1740 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica. It will be preceded by registration and a reception from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

Ron C. Ben-Yehuda, Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, and Michael K. Lindsey, Paul Hastings et al LLP, will be featured speakers.

The program has four objectives: to provide a basic understanding of the different types of intellectual property; to explore the differences between owning and licensing intellectual property; to survey different types of agreements involving intellectual property and key provisions in those agreements, and to provide a roadmap for spotting intellectual property issues in corporate due diligence.
