Director Tracy-Gene G. Durkin will be a speaker in the panel titled "Strategic Use of Design Rights" during IPWatchdog Virtual CON2020. Her panel will occur on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 12:45 p.m. EDT.
Design rights can be a useful tool in your arsenal, particularly when attempting to create overlapping protection. This panel will summarize the various design-related legal rights (i.e., design patents, trade dress, design-related copyrights) available to build company value. We will provide case examples for protection and enforcement strategies in a wide variety of product segments, including consumer electronics, apparel and footwear, and graphical user interface.
