San Jose, CA. 12th March 2020
Following the resounding success of World IP Review’s inaugural Technology Patent Network North America conference which took place in San Francisco in February 2019, we are delighted to announce the second Technology Patent Network North America event, taking place in San Jose, CA. on 12th March 2020.
Additionally, new frontiers have now been crossed that will change the patent landscape significantly. The advance of Artificial Intelligence will be accompanied by new kinds of patents, but also threatens the patent system as we know it. The world’s legal systems simply weren’t designed to cope with apportioning intellectual property protection to non-human innovation.
Technology Patent Network NORTH AMERICA is the latest conference in the Patent Network conference series to bring together an unrivalled audience of Patent and Licensing Heads from established and fledgling Technology innovators, along with private practice attorneys, and service providers.
The conference, taking place in San Jose on 12th March 2020, provides delegates with an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the sector issues of critical current importance; listen to best-in-class case studies; keep abreast of the likely forward impact of key judgements and political jolts; and network with global patent peers.
The conference has been specifically designed to bring together a 50:50 ratio of in-house counsel to private practice attorneys, enabling a balanced meeting of leading figures from across the whole technology patent attorney spectrum.
The San Jose conference will take a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delve deeper into the topics of specific current interest. Extended round table discussion groups enable a couple of hours to be spent in small groups, sharing views on a range of topics of your choosing. For fledgling tech companies, the conference will feature an open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues.
Starting with a concise round-up of recent notable trials from key global patent jurisdictions, the conference continues with a series of presentations and keynote panel discussions, Q&A sessions, extended round table discussion groups and a networking lunch — and culminates in a closing drinks reception. Attending will enable you to address your concerns; find solutions to your challenges; stay abreast of new precedent and harness new ways to protect and exploit your innovations.
