Strafford Publications is hosting the above-titled live phone/web seminar for tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12, 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.
Companies are using cloud computing to resolve capacity challenges, cut costs and improve flexibility. However, along with its advantages, cloud computing also brings new legal risks.
Cloud computing can impact patent, copyright and trademark rights in a number of ways. In the context of IP rights enforcement, for example, where and how information is stored may not be known to a customer of a cloud service, which can make investigating and asserting infringement claims more challenging and difficult.
In the context of IP right protection for example, cloud computing may impact inventorship issues. Further, in the area of copyright, cloud computing may impact analysis of whether and how a work is stored in a tangible medium of expression.
Peter H. Kang and Brian E. Mitchell will provide IP counsel with an examination of potential IP issues in cloud computing, including patent issues related to infringement, extraterritoriality, and inventorship; trademark issues related to prior art and distribution of information; and copyright issues related to tangible medium of expression, extraterritoriality, and infringement. They will outline best practices for protecting IP rights while using cloud computing.
The faculty will offer their perspectives and guidance on these and other critical questions:
- What are the risks of cloud computing for a business's rights in patents, trademarks and copyrights?
- How does cloud computing pose challenges for investigating possible IP infringement?
- What steps can counsel take to protect a client's rights in patents, trademarks and copyrights?
