You've just received a letter demanding your client take a patent license or cease-and-desist its infringing conduct. What should you advise your client? This seminar will discuss how to handle this situation for non-IP or new IP attorneys, an overview of covenants to non-competes in Texas and the impact by the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act. This course features a streaming video and a downloadable MP3 audio presentation from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on February 12, 2015. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session. This course is approved for 1.50 MCLE hours.

Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:

  • Initial Analysis and Response
