What's changed in 10 years?
What has changed for intellectual property and technology in 10 years? Nothing, and everything.
Since we started this publication ten years ago, in one sense, nothing has changed. Intellectual property and technology are still rapidly growing and still are at the heart of what every company needs to protect.
In another sense, though, everything has changed. IPT rights are even more relevant today. We now live in an ever-changing digital world characterized by new technologies and explosive growth.
For the past ten years, we have covered technology's cutting edge issues, including the America Invents Act, GDPR, Alice, the IoT, gene patenting, EDTX, biosimilars, GTLDs, TC Heartland, the PTAB, disparagement, franchisor joint employer issues, cloud computing, circuit splits and more. We have seen old laws stretch to cover new technology, and new laws enacted to encompass such technology. As our centerfold story notes, consumer data privacy rights are taking center stage globally.
In the coming decade, we will continue helping our clients across all sectors face challenging issues every day: from e-commerce, AI and web scraping to blockchain, augmented reality and technology convergence. Our preeminent IPT practice will continue serving our clients in geographies around the globe, providing a discerning path across this ever-changing legal landscape.
