Ethics in IP Enforcement
Wendi Sloane, head of Barack Ferrazzano's Intellectual Property practice, will participate in a panel discussion entitled, "Ethics in IP Enforcement" at the 85th Annual Meeting of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada. Wendi will discuss the United States legal environment with respect to enforcement of trademarks and copyrights, in particular, focusing on:
- Issues when working with private investigators
- The involvement of law firm personnel in making purchases or store visits
- Obtaining voluntary delivery of infringing items
A counterpart from a Canadian firm will address these issues from the perspective of the Canadian legal system.
