Join us for Part Two of the 16th Anniversary of the Virtual IP Law Institute!

Intellectual property is a burgeoning practice area with nuances and ever-changing innovations and issues that can try the patience of even the most seasoned practitioners. No one can afford to remain unacquainted with the rights and potential liabilities that may arise. That’s why those in the know attend PBI’s Intellectual Property Law Institute year after year. Our 16th IP Law Institute has something for everyone from the novice to the expert.


  • Year in Review – Copyright
    The panel will review current developments in copyright law, including decisions since September 2021, Copyright Office developments, and cases to watch.
  • Losing It – The Best Ways to Totally Mess Up A Domain Name Complaint
    Domain name disputes are quite different from trademark litigation and have many substantive and procedural nuances all their own. Yet some lawyers underestimate these proceedings to their client’s detriment. Come and learn the most common errors so that you can avoid them in your own practice! 
  • NFTs and IP
    Current issues relating to NFTs and how they are impacted by copyright and trademark laws. 
  • Protection and Waiver of Legal Privileges in Collaborative Development Efforts. When and How
    Use of a common interest agreement (CIA) to attempt to protect privileged/work product disclosures during the due diligence and development periods.
  • Reducing Risks in Trademark Assignments
    An in-gross assignment of a trademark is invalid and occurs when a trademark is transferred without any of its associated goodwill.  This presentation takes a look at the current case law surrounding the assignment-in-gross rule to explain what steps to take, and what to avoid when assigning a trademark to ensure the transfer of goodwill.
  • Ethical Dilemmas in IP - Foolish or Not? 
    Ethical issues present themselves in a myriad of ways throughout the representation of a client in intellectual property matters.  In patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, the law itself demands protection of confidential information, requires candor in disclosures, and involves a high degree of knowledge and skill as the laws develop and change as rapidly as the technology that it so often protects.  As a result, IP practitioners often confront interesting ethical issues, and this program will help practitioners in the field chart a sensible course so that fools do not repeat their follies. 

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download.

Recorded in April 2022.
