Today, companies use cloud computing to address data storage challenges, reduce costs, enhance inter-operability and improve flexibility. However, cloud computing can lead to new legal risks. This is especially true of intellectual property (IP), such as patents, copyrights and trademarks. Often, where and how the information is stored and accessed is unclear, making investigation of infringement claims more difficult.
In a two hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview and in-depth discussion of recent trends in Reconsidering Intellectual Property in Cloud Computing in 2016.
Pertinent issues of IP in the cloud to be addressed by our panel of speakers will include patent infringement, extraterritoriality and inventorship; prior art and distribution of information; and tangible medium of expression (copyright). The panel will offer some best practices for protecting IP rights while using cloud computing.
Key topics include:
Intellectual Property Issues in the Cloud
IP Rights in Cloud Technology
Ownership Rights for Newly-Created Content
New Content Jointly Owned by CSP and Customer
