|| Oct. 7: "Trade Secrets 2019: What Every Lawyer Should Know," sponsored by the Practising Law Institute, will be held in San Francisco, CA at the PLI California Center. Trade secrets can be among an organization’s most valuable assets at every stage of research, development and commercialization. Trade secrets law can protect cutting edge technologies, profit-enhancing improvements to mature technologies, and a host of valuable information in between. The importance of trade secrets law—and potential risks to trade secrets--is magnified when organizations increasingly collaborate with other companies, sometimes including competitors, in the United States and abroad, and when employees and consultants who have become immersed in trade secrets move among multiple players in the industry. New technologies such as artificial intelligence present new technical and legal challenges for which patent protection may be unavailable or uncertain as an alternative solution for protecting and sharing broad categories of intellectual property. The price of electing to protect information as a trade secret is eternal vigilance, which means that to succeed, organizations must stay on top of the latest developments in protecting trade secrets and litigating and defending against claims of misappropriation. This program brings together experts and thought leaders in the field to help you do just that. For further information and to register for this event, call 800-260-4PLI or visit www.pli.edu
