The monthly newsletter covers decisions and ongoing cases from California state and federal courts, as well as federal appellate courts from around the country. It addresses current and evolving issues, such as patent infringement claims on software development and new products, medical devices and treatments, cell phones and data systems, trademarks and trade dress, copyright infringement, protection of trade secrets, attorney fees, publicity rights, and more. Additionally, the newsletter includes commentaries on hot topics from some of the leading IP attorneys in the United States. Recent articles have discussed the intersection and tension between patent and antitrust law; executives leaving one company for another and taking trade secrets with them; the "narrow line" between fair use of data and infringement; joinder issues when there are multiple defendants in an infringement case; and infringement liability for U.S. government contractors.
