About the Primer:

IP Fundamentals 2008 was an ideal opportunity to learn more about two of most common areas where IP intersects with transactional practice, technology licensing and brand protection.  In the morning, our panel of trademark specialists guided us through the process of protecting brands, policing infringement and exploiting its value.  In the afternoon, our panel guided us through the six most heavily negotiated areas of a complex technology license.
