Many companies, even those that are considered savvy about protecting their technology, have hidden ownership problems that cloud their valuable intellectual property rights. Finding and addressing these problems is not difficult, but such issues can be devastating if they go undiscovered. Connect has organized this event with the help of lawyers from the San Diego office of Townsend, Townsend and Crew. This program is intended to address IP ownership planning, securing unperfected or problematic rights, and how to identify and resolve. Topics to be addressed include assignments, employment agreements, due diligence reviews, joint development agreements, joint ventures and litigation and litigation avoidance strategies. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., or register online here.
