Seminar Will Explore Software IP Issues

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 01:00

The DC Bar Association is offering a CLE seminar titled How to Recognize Critical Software IP Issues in Everyday Practice.

The program will take place on Wednesday, January 30 from 6 to 9:15 p.m. at the DC Bar Conference Center, 1250 H Street, NW, Washington, DC.

This course will arm the non-IP attorney with a good understanding of software and intellectual property rights, so the practitioner can identify key software IP issues arising in everyday practice. The program will briefly explore software basics prior to dissecting the patent, copyright, trade secret and trademark rights frequently incorporated in software. It also will touch on specific examples of software IP issues arising in a variety of transactional settings such as employment and contracting, mergers and acquisitions, lending, angel investments, and bankruptcy.

The speaker will be David Temeles, Bean Kinney & Korman PC.
