The Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation (IPOEF) and the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) have scheduled two upcoming patent and trademark conferences the first week of December. These conferences, both held at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., offer a combined 12.5 CLE credit hours (approximate) and will cover several areas of patent and trademark practice. The first conference, entitled "PTO Day - 17th Annual Conference on Patent and Trademark Office Law and Practice," will be held on December 4, 2006. This conference is presented by the IPOEF and includes general patent and trademark sessions in the morning and two sets of breakout sessions in the afternoon, including "Tips on Filing and Prosecuting Patent Applications," "Practicing Before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB)," and "Professional Responsibility for Intellectual Property Practitioners," to name a few. The second conference, entitled "Patent Interferences Rules & Practice Conference - Interference Cases Before the USPTO Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences," will be held on December 5, 2006, and includes sessions entitled "Introduction to the Trial Section," "Motions Practice During an Interference," "Cross Examination," and "Surviving the Pitfalls of 35 U.S.C. § 135(b)," among others. Registration information is available at the IPO website (link below). I neither represent IPOEF or IPO, nor do I endorse any particular CLE course.
