Jeanne Hamburg to Participate in Panel at NYSBA
Intellectual Property Law Section’s Annual Meeting
New York, NY (January 20, 2010) – Jeanne M. Hamburg, a Member of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will participate in a panel entitled “Ethics Update: 2009 – A Year in Transition” at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Intellectual Property Law Section of the New York State Bar Association. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 26, 2010, at the Hilton New York. The panel will be discussing the impact on IP practitioners of New York State’s new ethics rules which became effective in April, 2009. Hamburg’s presentation will address the ethical issues posed by the conduct of trademark investigations. Other panelists will discuss those issues arising from IP due diligence during mergers and acquisitions and from trademark searches.
The theme for the Intellectual Property Law Section meeting will be “2010 – An Internet and IP Odyssey: Navigating Bold New Challenges Along the Journey.” It will explore the bolder world of IP that lawyers and companies face, including issues raised by the manipulation of digital images in copyright, questions of secondary copyright and trademark liability, related domestic and international liability and enforcement issues, and related updates on recent development and case law.
