Washington, DC  20037

Litigation partner Robert Milligan, along with a panel of experts, will be speaking at the ITechLaw 2012 World Technology Law Conference on the following topics:

  • Open Source Hardware
  • The Future of Tech Patents
  • Trademark Protection in Social Media
  • New Online Anti-Piracy Initiatives in the U.S.

Robert will present on new online anti-piracy initiatives in the U.S. and Europe, including the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act. The legislation would allow intellectual property right holders and the U.S. Attorney General to obtain court orders against websites that facilitate infringement. While the European Parliament has criticized the U.S. legislation, similar legislation is presently being considered in Ireland.
