William Sloan Coats, Managing Partner of the Palo Alto office, and William A. Tanenbaum, Partner and Chair of the Technology, Intellectual Property & Outsourcing group, participated in PLI’s Intellectual Property Law Institute 2010. The Institute, a “must attend” program for IP lawyers, was held in New York City on September 23-24, 2010, and in San Francisco on October 28-29, 2010. The Institute addressed many of the most important developments in patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret law.
Mr. Coats spoke on the topic of “Fair Use” at both the New York and the San Francisco seminars, and discussed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, fair use and copy protection, and case updates.
Mr. Tanenbaum discussed “Licensing in the U.S. (Recent Cases)” at the New York seminar, including covenants not to sue versus licenses, survival of license rights and licensing of new technologies (e.g., “GreenTech” and “Clean Tech”).
