Kinney & Lange held its annual Seminar on June 13, 2014 in Minneapolis, entitled “Intellectual Property: Advanced Topics for Businesses in a Changing Legal Landscape”. The Seminar covered a wide range of topics, including various intellectual property law developments at the U.S. Supreme Court, a contemporary discussion of patent trolls, and a guest panel discussion on the topics of post grant proceedings in the U.S. and opposition proceedings in Europe. A special thank you to our in-house counsel panel, pictured above from left to right, Carolyn Eckart, IP Counsel at St. Jude Medical; Andrew DeMaster, IP Counsel at The Valspar Corporation; and Alana Bergman, Associate General Counsel of IP at Covidien. We also thank Kendra Hogan and Richelle Martin from the University of Wisconsin, who spoke on “Industry-Sponsored Research and Intellectual Property in the University Setting,” and Jason Campbell who spoke on IP landscaping and business strategy.
