The Computer and High Technology Law Journal (CHTLJ) at Santa Clara University School of Law is hosting a symposium next week on legal issues in clean technology, including a panel discussion on international IP issues.

The event will be held on Friday, January 29, 2010 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, and California MCLE credit is available for those who attend.

The event is entitled “The Clean Technology Revolution:  Developing Solutions for Tomorrow’s Legal Challenges” and consists of four panel sessions, including a discussion with in-house counsel and venture capitalists about the issues affecting their businesses, legal issues raised by the smart grid, issues in international IP and technology transfer, and the impact of government regulation and access to government funding. 

The keynote speaker will be Paul Dickerson, former COO of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and current partner at the Haynes and Boone law firm.

I will be participating in the panel session on international IP issues along with Todd R. Miller of Jones Day, Cal – Berkeley Economics Professor Bronwyn Hall and Santa Clara Law Professor Colleen Chien.
