Spring is the time for IP law conferences…and fortunately, spring is almost here. (I’m trying to be willfully blind to forecasters’ projections that it’s going to be -5 here in Iowa in a few days). Two conferences coming up next week:
Summit on Law in the Global Marketplace:
On Monday, February 24, the University of California Hastings College of the Law, the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, and Hogan Lovells are hosting a one-day summit on Law in the Global Marketplace: Intellectual Property and Related Issues at UC Hastings. Speakers include Judge Rader, the Hon. Sung-Mei Hsiung, High Court Judge, Taiwan Intellectual Property Court, and Mark Jackson, Senior Patent Counsel for Genentech. Details are available here: [Law and the Global Marketplace Registration]
(I’m told that the event is currently sold-out, but they’re keeping a waitlist. Folks interested in the program can contact Chris Mammen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.).
