Speaking Engagement

Robert Milligan to Speak at Intro to IP: Trade Secrets Webinar



12:00 - 1:30 p.m. Pacific

Robert Milligan will be speaking at the Intro to IP: Trade Secrets webinar, hosted by Continuing Education of the Bar, on October 6 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
This is part 4 of a 6 program Intro to IP series. Trade secrets cover a wide range of business “know how” assets–from secret formulas and processes to social media accounts and customer lists.  Whatever the form, the fundamental purpose of a trade secret is to provide an economic advantage to the holder.  But how do you identify, assert, and protect an intellectual property right you necessarily do not want to disclose?  What about the very real risk that those secrets will leave with a departing employee?  
Program Highlights:
  • What is a trade secret under the UTSA and California law
  • What rights does a trade secret provide and how do you assert them
  • When issues arise internally–employees, joint ventures, and licenses
  • Non-use vs. non-disclosure  for departing employees
  • NDAs, non-competes, and non-solicitation provisions
  • Third party theft of trade secrets
  • What about reverse engineering?
  • The “Inevitable Disclosure” doctrine applicable in other jurisdictions
  • Best practices to maintain secrecy
