Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Presents
Seminar on Intellectual Property on the Web
Bridgewater, NJ (June 14, 2010) – Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A., will present a breakfast seminar entitled “Intellectual Property on the Web: Trademark, Copyright and Patent Issues That Impact All Companies in the Internet Age,” on Thursday, June 17, 2010 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Jeanne Hamburg and Brian Anscomb, members of the firm’s Intellectual Property Group, will discuss the myriad of transactional and contentious issues arising from use (and misuse) of intellectual property (patents, trademarks and copyrights) on the Internet. This seminar is intended for business owners, marketing professionals, in-house counsel, patent agents, companies and individuals who promote their goods and services on the web and anyone interested in protecting their valuable intellectual property assets on the web.
This seminar will provide attendees with valuable information concerning the protection and exploitation of trademarks and copyrights on the web. Presenters will also address the implications of the most significant U.S. Supreme Court decision to date affecting Internet-related patents, to be decided before the seminar date, namely the Bilski Case, which may impact the hundreds, if not thousands, of “business method patents” previously issued by the U.S. Patent Office.
A few of the topics to be discussed include: Publishing and Licensing of Web Content on the Web; Recovery of Domain Names from Cyber Squatters; Marketing on the Web (e.g. pay-per click, pay per view, key word purchases, hyper linking, pop-up advertising and framing); Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s Remedies for Online Copyright Infringement; Clearance and Fair Use of Web Content; Impact of the Bilski Decision on U.S. and Non-U.S. Patent Rights; Construction of Patent Claims to Match PTO Guidance in View of Bilski; and Impact of the Bilski Decision on Existing Licenses.
