About This Course
This CLE course will introduce the key parts of Intellectual Property (patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets) to the audience. Attorney Greg Popowitz will go through what Intellectual Property Protection will provide, the process, international protection, general considerations, and common mistakes/misconceptions. Greg will also introduce the recent passage of the Defend Trade Secrets Act, the first federal civil cause of action for trade secrets.
The second part of the course will be more directed at what to look out for as attorneys use technology. Greg will discuss attorneys using efiling (such as redaction), ediscovery, social media and websites, and cloud computing (confidentiality). Finally, the course will go over relevant portions of the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure and Florida Rules of Judicial Administration.
