  • Manufacturers, sellers, and software developers, sometimes restrict access to proprietary information and IP to ensure that products and software continue to operate in the intended manner, which can sometimes limit the ability of consumers to make modifications or repairs. In recent years, advocates of a “right to repair” have sought to change that practice, arguing that consumers should have a right to use, modify, and repair anything they purchase whenever, wherever, and however they want. Those advocates have introduced legislation at the federal and state level targeted at a host of industries, including medical infrastructure, digital equipment, vehicles, and farm equipment. But these proposals often conflict with and threaten established intellectual property rights. In this webinar, panelists will explore this tension as well as developments in proposed legislation on right to repair and efforts by some IP owners to seek private arrangements with industry groups as an alternative to legislative action.

  • This webinar will address emerging issues around protecting and enforcing NFT trademarks.

  • The belief that the legal profession is a meritocracy persists despite the strong evidence of the role that unconscious bias and preconceptions continue to play in determining who is seen as succeeding and falling behind. In this webinar, a panel of senior legal practitioners and diversity and inclusion specialists explore how misguided confidence in meritocracy affects critical decisions and alternative paradigms that can ameliorate those effects.

  • The Unified Patent Court is supposed to open its doors on June 1, 2023. That means, unless opted out of the system, European patents can be enforced by litigation before this new court for multiple EPC states in one go, and European patents in force in the participating member states can become liable for revocation in a single UPC court action. With the opening of the UPC the European Patent Office will also begin granting Unitary Patents providing patent protection in the participating member states; these Unitary Patents will be administered by the EPO and can only be litigated before the UPC, resulting in one-stop-shops for both administration and litigation. This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the UPC system and shed some more light on the threats and opportunities of this new venue both from the perspective of industry and litigators.

  • Diversity & Inclusion has become a key initiative in most corporate environments, but innovation and accountability has distinguished organizations as they progress in the space.

What standards should exist for company vendors, legal and otherwise? In this panel, we will discuss those questions and more to provide a solution-based program, leaving you with some best practices as you continue in your DEI journey in 2023.
