Post by Jill N. Link, Pharm.D.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is hosting a Trade Secret Symposium on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at its headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. This symposium is the first of its kind for trade secrets. More information is available on the USPTO website. Both live and webcast attendance is available for this event.

The USPTO symposium will focus on the protection of U.S. trade secrets from misappropriation and is an administrative follow-up from the February 2013 Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets. Topics to be discussed include legislative proposals regarding trade secret protection, losses due to trade secret theft and challenges to protecting trade secrets, the intersection of patent and trade secret protection, issues in civil litigation, trade secret protection in foreign jurisdictions, and proposed responses to the threat of trade secret theft in the U.S. Presenters will include representatives of academia, government, legal counsel and industry, and will include time for audience questions.

There is no registration cost for attending either the live or webcast event taking place between 9 am EST and 3 pm EST this Thursday January 8, 2015.
