Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law to host ‘IP Strategy in the Digital Age’ symposium Friday, Feb. 6

The Wake Forest Law Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law will host its 2015 symposium, “IP Strategy in the Digital Age,” beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 6, in the Worrell Professional Center, Room 1312. The symposium is co-sponsored by Kilpatrick Townsend.

“IP and its regulations have changed as our society has become increasingly digital,” explains Symposium Editor Brinson Taylor. “To prosper in today’s ‘online’ world, all businesses will need to create value out of current and projected government IP regulations. Successful business strategies for our continuously expanding IP world will actively manage the point of convergence between IP regulation and end-user value creation.”

U.S. Congressman George Holding (‘96), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and former member of the Judiciary Committee and the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, will be the featured keynote speaker. His talk will begin at 12:25 p.m., directly after lunch. Rep. Holding (R-N.C.) will then join Mark Prak from Brooks Pierce Humphrey & McLendon LLP and Chris Matton from Bandwidth Inc. in a guided conversation regarding hot issues in intellectual property.

In addition, a distinguished group of legal practitioners and academics from around the country will discuss current business issues relating to patents, trademarks and copyrights in the digital world.
