If you’ve ever been frightened by your employees’ lack of copyright awareness, come visit me and my CCC colleagues at the 2019 Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona October 27 – 30th. 

CCC’s team of licensing professionals will be available throughout the show in Booth #614 to discuss your current copyright challenges and how CCC’s licensing solutions and educational resources can help alleviate your fears about sharing text and movies in the workplace.   

The conference is a great opportunity to get the essential knowledge and legal insights you need to navigate an increasingly complex business environment and make meaningful connections with in-house counsel from around the globe. 

It’s also the perfect time for us to connect with our valued customers, discuss how we can continue to support your compliance strategies, and help you better promote copyright awareness to those employees who might still be in the dark. 

Test your copyright knowledge in our booth and receive a free gift and check out our top picks for program sessions to help provide more illumination about copyright.

Monday, October 28 – 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM 

As your company’s operations have become more global and your business partners may be located overseas, it is critical to understand the differences between the applicable US law and the law of the jurisdiction in which your business counterpart is located. This session will focus on licensing agreements involving parties in the United States, European Union, and Asia, and will cover business culture and negotiation styles, differences in types of intellectual property rights, license grant provisions, tax considerations, government approvals/registration requirements, antitrust issues, and dispute resolution.

What Every In-house Counsel Needs to Know About Global Intellectual Property

This survey of international IP matters will cover the Middle East, Indo/Pacific, Africa, and Latin America. In breakout groups, counsel from different countries or with experience working in those jurisdictions will speak about key countries in the region, how courts interpret and/or enforce Intellectual Property rights (and best practices for pursing infringers, etc.), and the way those countries approach IP rights (e.g., software and business methods are a no-go, drugs will have a compulsory license, etc.).
