presented by the American Intellectual Property Law Association

November 3, 2022

The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) presents the 2022 Design Rights Boot Camp in a virtual format  taking place in November 2022. Cantor Colburn Partner and design patent attorney Jenae Gureff is moderating a panel on International Design Rights and the Hague on November 9, 2022. The Firm's Design Patent Practice Group is ranked #4 in the U.S., and our team has drafted successful patents for a diverse group of products and technologies ranging from automotive to chewing gum and candy. 

Jenae has considerable experience in preparing and prosecuting utility and design patent applications in the mechanical and biomedical arts, particularly medical devices and prosthetics, surgical methods and techniques, eyewear, robotic surgical systems, door technology systems, remote control devices, image detection units, aircraft systems, and agricultural delivery devices. Jenae also handles opinion work related to the foregoing technologies.  She is an active member of the American Intellectual Property Law Association, and is the current Chair of the Mentoring Committee, having recently served as Vice Chair.  

Design Boot Camp Overview

The Design Rights Boot Camp is a first of its kind five-day comprehensive CLE program designed for both new and experienced IP practitioners who wish to learn about protecting and enforcing designs in all areas of IP, including design patents, copyright and trademark dress.   The program has classes for both beginning practitioners and experienced practitioners that want to know more about the increasingly important area of design rights. The whole range of design rights practice will be covered, from prosecution to enforcement. International topics are also included, including the Hague agreement, trade dress internationally and copyright internationally.

Participants will have two sessions per day for the first three days.  The final two days will be focused on breakout learning sessions in targeted practice areas, where we will work in small groups on a specific industry type to discuss in detail how to consider the multiple overlapping type of design rights for specific industries

The sessions will be presented live, but will be available to all registrants on demand.
