Why You Should Attend:
IP Discussions with Joshua Simmons is a series of conversations hosted by nationally recognized intellectual property litigator, Joshua Simmons. Each month, Josh is joined by a panel of IP luminaries, leading scholars, and industry insiders. Together, they examine major topics and events in a civil, roundtable format.
Technological Protection Measures are used by intellectual property owners to protect access to and prevent the copying of their works. In many industries, they serve important interests of both the IP owner and the consumer by ensuring that software and products containing software operate as intended. Yet, laws that prohibit the circumvention of TPMs also inhibit those that seek to repair such products, as well as those who seek to go beyond repair to modification, sparking policy debates at the federal and state level.

After completing this program, participants will be able to:
• Explain what qualifies as a Technological Protection Measure
• Recall the ways in which courts have held circumventing TPMs violates federal law
• Understand when circumventing a TPM is authorized
