The first panel, scheduled for 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, is titled IP Protection for Mobile Apps: Forms of Protection, Obtaining IP Rights, Navigating Data Privacy, and Cybersecurity. The CLE course will prepare IP counsel to anticipate and respond to legal challenges facing companies that develop and utilize mobile apps.

The second panel, titled Making Section 2(f) Claims: Demonstrating Acquired Distinctiveness, will be held On Tuesday, April 9, and will begin at 1 p.m. The course will guide trademark counsel in understanding how the courts and USPTO view the issue of acquired distinctiveness in support of a trademark application. The panel will outline approaches that work—and those that don't work—in demonstrating acquired distinctiveness.
