IP for the Non-IP Practitioner and Information Privacy Law

IP for the Non-IP Practitioner: Pitfalls, Perspectives and Pointers
IP issues now pervade, or at least influence, many aspects of commercial and personal affairs as well as individual and corporate wealth. This seminar seeks to provide the non-IP practitioner with insights into these issues. The program begins with an intellectual property primer (patents, trade secrets, copyright, trademarks and franchises) geared to the practitioner. The remainder of the program will review specific matters (whether engagements for advice, transactions or litigation and whether involving common or sophisticated ideas and technology, artistic works, brands or product distribution) that may arise in your practice. The program includes a review of some of the most common misunderstandings in the IP field (including ownership, scope of rights, ethical issues, licenses, non-compete arrangements and the interplay of federal and state laws).

Information Privacy Law: Intro To Consumer Privacy and Data Protection
Does the fight between Apple and the FBI mean anything to my clients? Do my clients understand the many privacy issues and risks inherent in their businesses or transactions? Who are the agencies and regulators involved in these issues? What federal or state laws govern these matters? Are my clients collecting information on their customers or on visitors to their web-sites or mobile apps? Do my clients have, or need, a “privacy policy”? What is a “privacy policy”? What sorts of contracts or “terms of service” are used in this context? What are “Fair Information Practices”? Why should my small, or large, clients in Louisiana care about the European Union Directives on Data Protection? Or, the “Regulation” or “Safe Harbor” associated with it? These, and other questions, are addressed in this introductory seminar.
