BABC: Let’s Talk…Intellectual Property with AA Thornton and Conley Rose

April 27 @ 12:00 am 12:01 am

Let’s Talk….Intellectual Property (IP) with AA Thornton and Conley Rose

Do you have an idea and want to know whether it might be protectable? Do you wish you knew the basics about intellectual property law?  Are you involved in a startup and want to learn what might be protectable from an intellectual property law standpoint?  Are you curious about the differences between intellectual property law in the US versus Europe?  Would you like an opportunity to ask questions to experienced intellectual property attorneys from the US and Europe? 

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this event is for you. 

Join Marianne Privett from AA Thornton and Elexis Jones from Conley Rose for an informal conversation around intellectual property (IP) law.

Marianne and Elexis have known each other and worked together since 2010. Marianne is based in the UK and Elexis is in Texas. They both work with clients in the UK and US and have found that it helps to have a local connection when working in each other’s jurisdictions.

This event is intended as a discussion so following a brief introduction to IP law, the team will take questions from attendees. 

What will the conversation cover?

  • What is IP anyway?
  • When does IP come up and when should I be aware of it?
  • What can be protected?
  • What is the difference between patents, trademarks, registered design, and copyright?
  • What are the differences between IP laws in the UK/Europe and the U.S?
  • How has Brexit impacted IP law?
  • What role does IP law play in innovation?

 In order for attendees to get the most from this session, it would help our panel to know if you have specific questions. Please submit any questions in advance when you register.

A Zoom link will be sent to those registered ahead of the event.
