Trade Secret or Patent Protection – Which One to Choose?

Speaker, BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Series: Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP, January 2018.

Inventions can be protected through different forms of intellectual property. The choice of whether to use patents, trade secrets, or both can depend upon the nature of idea and/or the business context surrounding the idea. Partner Patrick Jewik of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP will discuss the interplay between patents and trade secrets, and factors to be taken into account when identifying the best form of intellectual property protection.

Sponsored by Berkeley Center for Law & Technology (BCLT), Berkeley Technology Law Journal (BTLJ) and Patent Law Society (PLS).

This event is open to current Berkeley Law students, Berkeley Law affiliates and BCLT law firm sponsors only.
