Expert faculty will present U.S. law and recent developments on protection of design patent and trade dress rights in product designs and product features. IP product design exclusivity has become increasingly important for competitive advantage. Public policy, however, encourages product copying in the interest of lower costs and buying opportunities for consumers, unless sellers have exclusive IP rights. The program will include discussion of the relative costs of obtaining, defending, and enforcing pertinent IP rights, whether in proceedings of U.S. courts, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Customs Service, or the International Trade Commission.

Please join William P. Atkins and Richard L. Kirkpatrick, Partners at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP as they address:

  • considerations for product design patentability and infringement; new developments and case law
  • considerations for trade dress protectability and infringement; new developments and case law
  • numerous visuals of litigated product designs found to be valid and infringed, or not
  • forums for asserting rights
  • considerations of costs, time frames, and practicalities of IP protection for product designs
