October 23, 2012 • Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Washington, DC

Crowell & Moring is proud to sponsor AIPLA's first Trade Secret Law Summit on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Government officials now estimate that $300 billion worth of US trade secret information is stolen annually.Trade secret litigation continues to grow exponentially, as technology makes it easier and easier for employees and partners to misappropriate data and attempt to cover their tracks.

It is more important than ever to learn the fundamentals of trade secret protection, understand how the America Invents Act will impact the usage of trade secret protection in the future, and understand what you and your client need to do to protect your confidential information from cyber attacks and trade secret theft.

Discussions will include:

The interplay of trade secrets and patents as a result of the America Invents Act, including "prior user" rights

  • Key developments in trade secret law, including the DuPont v. Kolon case, TianRui Group v. ITC decision and important federal legislation
  • Special issues presented by spoliation of evidence and electronic discovery
  • Corporate counsel perspectives, including measures to protect secrets, trade secret audits and other important tools
Crowell & Moring partners Michael Songer and Mark Klapow will be presenting on Current Litigation Issues and Corporate Counsel Perspectives.

Crowell & Moring will also be hosting a reception at the conclusion of the event.
