The Intellectual Property Committee will meet at the Florida Bar’s Annual Convention at the Boca Raton Resort and Club on Thursday June 25th from 10 am until 12 pm (please note that some of the Bar registration materials incorrectly state the meeting starts at 11:30 am. This is not correct; we wouldn’t hold our committee meeting during the Business Law Section Luncheon). If you haven’t yet registered for the Annual Meeting, be sure to so so soon, as early bird registration ends June 1st.
Even if you are not registering for the Annual Meeting, you can still attend the Intellectual Property Committee meeting and obtain an hour of valuable IP Certification and CLE credit. During the latter half of the meeting, Mark Stein will present a one hour CLE entitled Trademark Issues Related to Big Data. This CLE program will provide information about the role “Big Data” plays in trademark prosecution issues. While the term “Big Data” has many meanings, it is most typically defined as the massive quantity of raw data that has not been analyzed or organized in any manner that is being generated each day. The use of, as well as the new businesses and services arising from this collection of data has created unique trademark issues for companies in many industries. This CLE explores those issues, identifies and describes them and then provides practical ideas for dealing with issues “Big Data” creates in the prosecution and protection of trademarks.
