Intellectual Property Law Forum 2020: Day 1 Registration

Bringing the Vices (and IP) to You

*** This is registration to only attend Day 1 of the virtual event ***

The Intellectual Property Law Forum originally scheduled for April 17 will now be a virtual CLE event, held over two days, July 15 - 16. The TBA IP Executive Council has put together a fantastic program to discuss intellectual property with vices front and center.

Day 1: The first day of the program will provide accounts of bad actors running afoul of trade secret law, provide insight into the life of hackers and finishes with ways to avoid trouble with online information. These sessions run from 1 to 4 p.m. CDT. Attendees can earn two general and one dual CLE hours.

  • 1 p.m.: “Trade Secrets” by Shawn Sentilles
  • 2 p.m.: “Hackers, Lawyers, and CC-BSD-GNU's, Oh My! How Open Source Software is Invading Proprietary Platforms, for Better or Worse” by Kevin Christopher
  • 3 p.m.: “Data Privacy - What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About New Privacy Regulations” by Autumn Boyd

In an effort to provide flexibility, the TBA is offering various registration options:
