Procopio News and Events -- August 2018

In Procopio's August 2018 newsletter, we provide links to a number of informative articles, including:

  • What employers need to know before permitting their employees to use personal electronic devices for work;
  • Why patent owners still face significant risks before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board despite some recent positive developments;
  • How a new program in the City of San Diego could pay local companies to stay in town or relocate there;
  • The first of a three-part series on making sure you file an intent-to-use trademark application correctly;
  • Good news for owners of trademarks in the European Union post-Brexit;
  • And how recent changes in California state law related to unions impact charter schools.

The newsletter also highlights upcoming events:

  • An August 17 San Diego County Bar Association panel on legal ethics; and
  • An August 22 seminar on intellectual property protection in our Silicon Valley office.

We also highlight the latest video in our diversity and inclusion series. This short video features Procopio Partner Adrian Martinez sharing his perspective as an immigrant from Mexico on why diversity and inclusion matters in the practice of law and at Procopio (you can find the video here).

And as always, we provide a wrap-up of social media highlights from the last month.

Please enjoy the August 2018 Procopio newsletter, and sign up for future issues.
