Intellectual Property Litigation

Purpose

The purpose of the Intellectual Property Committee is to provide a forum for discussing current issues in the area of intellectual property law. The committee acts as a vehicle for the promotion of relations between the segment of the patent bar intellectual property attorneys who are in private practice and those patent intellectual property attorneys who work for private industry, in the public sector or nonprofit sector.

A Message from the Chair

John F. Bennett

“Whether your practice focuses exclusively on IP litigation or you just want to stay up-to-date on recent IP developments to better counsel your clients, the Cincinnati Bar Association's Intellectual Property Litigation Committee welcomes all attorneys. The IP Litigation Committee holds five casual “lunch-and-learn” style gatherings annually to discuss topical issues in the field of IP ranging from new developments in substantive IP law to tips and tools useful in everyday practice. Past presentations have touched on such diverse issues as the enactment of the America Invents Act, Constitutional Questions Surrounding Trade Dress Functionality Doctrine, and the Ethics of E-Discovery. On April 24, 2012, we will kick off this year's programming with a discussion on “Patent Damages, What Your Damages Expert Wants You Know.” So, whether or not you know the difference between your patent's specification or its written description, please join us for our always informative and enjoyable meetings.”
