April Meeting Notice
Legal Update - IP Law and Audio
Presented By
Kevin Jablonski
Patent Attorney - Lane Powell, Seattle

Wednesday, April 22, 7:30pm
Shoreline Community College, Room 818 (music building)
Directions to Shoreline CC

Patent attorney Kevin Jablonski will present information and foster discussion regarding recently proposed legislation and changes to laws affecting the audio world. These topics will include:

  1. Proposed legislation regarding music licensing recently embraced by the US Copyright Office.
  2. Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank — Is software still patentable?
  3. Marvin Gaye or Robin Thicke/Pharrell Williams/T.I. — the Blurred Lines of copyright infringement.
  4. Some other stuff considered interesting to IP attorneys but mightily boring to just about everyone else.

The presentation will offer opportunities to "ask the lawyer" burning questions, though it is important to point out that no legal advice will be given.
