American Law Institute – American Bar Association (ALI-ABA) has four upcoming conferences scheduled related to litigation and licensing of intellectual property. The first course is entitled "Trial of a Patent Case" (CM024), which will be held in Chicago on September 28-29. Topics will include opinions of counsel regarding willful infringement (focusing on Knorr-Bremse and In re Echostar), inequitable conduct, demonstrative exhibits used for damages claims, patent reform, and other topics. The second course is entitled "Intellectual Property Licensing Today" (CM049), to be held in Chicago on October 5-6. Some of the planned topics include reviews of individual license types (patent, trademark, copyright, and software), technology transfer agreements, advertising, negotiation and exit strategies, and dispute resolution. The third course is entitled "Litigating Trademark, Domain Name, and Unfair Competition Cases" (CM017), to be held in Boston on October 19-20. Topics will include false advertising, famous marks, experts, fair use, confusion, and others. A fourth course is anticipated for May 10-11, 2007 in Washington, DC, entitled "Internet Law for the Practical Lawyer" (CM045). Specific details are not yet available for that seminar. ALI-ABA also offers free IP reference information if you register for its e-mail distribution (link below). I neither represent ALI-ABA, nor do I endorse any particular course or reference (the lawyer in me just had to say that).
