IP Beyond ID
Stoel Rives LLP

Licensing Executives Society Oregon SW Washington Chapter

IP Beyond ID Leveraging Trade Dress to Enhance and Develop Brand

TOPIC OVERVIEW Trade dress of a product or a service is often overlooked in a company’s overall branding and trademark strategies. Sophisticated companies are using trade dress in ever expanding ways to establish brand recognition. Trade dress has been traditionally limited to product packaging such as the unique shape of the Coke bottle, but it has now become much broader and pervasive. Companies are developing unique building designs and restaurant layouts, integrating logos into product and store designs, establishing exclusive use of color in signage, ads and displays. Through examples and case studies, the presenters from Ziba Design and Stoel Rives LLP will describe what is happening in the marketplace and provide predictions of what may be in store for the future.

SPEAKER Jeremy Kaye Jeremy Kaye is a Creative Director at Ziba Design with extensive experience in global business strategy, design management, product development and brand marketing. As an entrepreneur and director with major global corporations Jeremy has worked with some of the world’s foremost apparel and consumer product companies (Nike, Gap Inc., J. Crew and Patagonia, IBM, P&G). At Ziba, Jeremy leads teams to create solutions for global clients by crafting compelling branded experiences that support key business strategies.

SPEAKER & DISCUSSION MODERATOR John A. Rafter, Jr. Jay is a partner in Stoel Rives' Intellectual Property practice group. His background includes experience obtaining both trademark and patent protection for clients in a wide range of technology. He is experienced in managing major client patent portfolios, preparing opinion letters and negotiating licenses. He has also represented clients in enforcing or defending intellectual property rights via patent, trademark, and trade dress litigation in several districts of the federal courts, patent interference proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Board of Appeals and Interferences, and trademark opposition proceedings, including successfully defending a trade dress claim before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Fostering Innovation Through Social Media – Using it Openly But Wisely
OregonZoo

More than just a hot topic and in the news, Social Media, led by its poster children Facebook® and Twitter ®, has quickly become an integral part of our society. While the use of these tools has become pervasive in our social interactions and many companies have integrated these methods into their outbound marketing strategies, there are fewer examples where Social Media has been used to drive innovation within a technology company.

You will hear from both the industry perspective and the media/marketing perspective on how companies are and should be using these new social media tools foster innovation on company products, services, distribution and customer service. They will discuss collaboration, creating community environments, data mining, facilitating customer feedback and how to integrate this information and collaboration into the company’s product/service development culture. Learn to balance the opportunity promised by Social Media with the real need to protect your Intellectual Property.

Join us for this informative breakfast meeting and learn how your organization can make the most of this powerful tool.

Technology Association of Oregon Legal Forum - Trademark, Copyright, and Design Patent Boot Camp
Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC)

Treating the three categories of IP (trademark, copyright, and design patent) as individual strategies is one way of protecting your IP however these same three categories can be used synergistically to create a cohesive IP policy that will provide greater protection overall.

Learn from Craig Morris, Managing Attorney for Trademark Outreach United States Patent and Trademark Office as he kicks off the Trademark, Copyright, and Design Patent Boot Camp on February 14th. Craig will give a general overview identifying the differences between the three categories as well as domain names and business registrations. He will discuss the basic process and strategy for protecting each, review basic considerations for each, and discuss how they should be used collectively for maximum protection.

Additional Topics: •To register or not to register •How to enforce? •Importance of selecting a strong mark, that is, both federally registrable and legally protectable •Whether an attorney should be used when doing the initial search •Potential grounds for the USPTO to refuse registration •What may happen if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights •How to avoid scams perpetrated by companies the request fees for services not required by the USPTO

Concluding Craig Morris’s overview there will be three breakout sessions which will focus on how each category applies to one product, i.e. iPod, Nike shoes, Coke bottle, etc. The outcome of the sessions is to demonstrate how a design patent can and should be linked to trademark and copyright.

Small Group Breakout Sessions Design Patents Session: Leads: Katie Maksym, Nike and Brenna Leggard, Lane Powell LLP •How best to cover a product design with a design patent •What strategies can be employed to broaden and maintain coverage through small design iterations? •Strategies for extending coverage for functional features through the use of decorative features •Aspects of the design patent process that can tie in trademark or copyrights and how this can provide enhanced coverage of the product

Best Practices in Patent Monetization - Making Your IP a Profit Center | Technology & IP Event
Multnomah Athletic Club

Intellectual Property is a vital part of a company's value. Not only are Patent and Trademark portfolios crucial to protecting a company's intellectual property asset but they can also be a key revenue generator.

With the large growth in IP transactions and deals, companies are now looking at creating stronger ROI from their IP portfolios. As a result, IP leaders are being held more accountable for the revenue generated from their portfolios and companies are looking for ways to monetize their patents that would otherwise sit on the shelf.

Some companies begin their monetization process by developing their portfolios. Techniques such as brainstorming, patent mapping, core technology charting, filing decisions and continuance planning are some of the methods used to prepare for an IP monetization strategy. These steps should be completed before attempting to monetize any part of the portfolio. This seminar will explain and address these techniques.

The seminar will also assist you in creating an IP monetization strategy that meets your business goals. This includes defensive planning.

Topics that will be addressed at the seminar:

• How to strategically build an IP Portfolio • Selection, analysis and valuation of targets and your IP portfolio • Options for monetization • Benchmarks of a strong monetization program • Limiting the risks of monetization • Defense posture and what you can do now to limit your target profile • What to do if you receive a “cease and desist or infringement letter” • Lowering legal and settlement costs

Presenters: * Steve Taylor , Principal, IPStrom * **Joe Shallenburger, Chief Patent Counsel, IPStrom

Who should attend? General Counsel, CTOs, VPs of Engineering and CEOs who are interested in changing their IP department from a cost center to a profit center.

Event Details: When: Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Where: The Multnomah Athletic Club, 1849 SW Salmon St, Portland, OR 97205 Time: 7:30 – 10:00 AM | 7:30 AM registration, networking, and breakfast | 8:00 AM Panels and Q&A Cost: $25 Members | $45 Nonmembers
