Industry Update on Intellectual Property Issues –
A Bird’s Eye View and Interactive Workshop
The (inaugural) Intellectual Property Workshop for the Standards Community will address the many questions, struggles, solutions and the future of intellectual property (IP) protection. This interactive event will bring together standards developers, sellers, vendors and users to openly discuss key issues and how the community can work together to effectively combat illegal use of IP. We are fortunate enough to have John Walter, CEO of SCC as our Master of Ceremonies. A question and answer panel comprised of experts from a wide variety of backgrounds will kick off the morning. Nicolas Fleury (Acting Deputy secretary General of ISO) will wrap up the panel with a presentation on the future of IP from an international perspective. The morning will conclude with a roundtable where each attendee will have the opportunity to share a burning question, experience, or issue and get support from their colleagues. Please join us to be a part of the evolving discussion and solution! This is sure to be a lively discussion. Our hope is that each attendee leaves with valuable insights and questions to take back to their place of work.
