The 60th Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference opens today at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago to discuss hot topics in patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secrets law. The conference is sponsored by the Center for Intellectual Property, Information, and Privacy Law at The John Marshall Law School. (The Director, Professor Daryl Lim, is pictured at left.) It's a packed room with attendees from around the world, including countries as far away as China and Egypt.
The conference focuses on the many challenges to intellectual property rights in a global economy. In addition to updates on recent cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and other developments in patents, trademarks, copyright, and trade secrets, the conference includes significant international content, including a panel on protecting international property law in China and a keynote address from Probir Mehta, the Acting U.S. Trade Representative for Intellectual Property and Innovation, who negotiated the IP provisions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.
If you are missing today's program, there are upcoming events of interest to readers of this blog include a presentation on March 23, 2016 at The John Marshall Law School by Kenneth Adamo on Recent Changes in Law and Practice before the United States International Trade Commission.
Congratulations to Professor Daryl Lim, the Center for Intellectual Property, Information, and Privacy Law, and the conference organizers.
