The Naples Roundtable™ will conduct its 2016 Patent Experts Conference on the holiday weekend of February 13-15, 2016. The conference includes a sunset dinner cruise on February 13, a cocktail reception from 3-7pm on February 14, and a formal program from 8am to 4pm on Monday, February 15, 2016, concluding with an informal Chinese dinner that evening. Licks Attorneys is a platinum sponsor of the conference and our partner, Otto Licks, will speak during the third panel of the formal program called “Is innovation well served by the limitation on international patent exhaustion reflected in the result in Jazz Photo? To what extent do notions of copyright exhaustion shed light on issues of patent exhaustion?” These conferences will mark a radical departure from the classic lecture format CLE program. Instead, participation will be limited to recognized experts, and the conferences will be structured to facilitate free discussions and exchanges of ideas on the hottest patent law topics of the day.
