GOAL to Organize the Global IP ConfEx in San Francisco this November, an Event Managed by Events 4 Sure to Discuss Subjects under Intellectual Property, Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks among others in the US and the World

SAN FRANCISCO, June 16, 2015: Intellectual Property (IP) has emerged as a critical business asset. Consequently, monetization, deal-making, financing and other forms of IP value creation are on the rise. From raising capital to business growth to M&A and exit strategies, IP can be a driver in forming alliances and increasing value for companies, investors and shareholders. In the US, the patent system has already begun to roll out reforms with the implementation of the America Invents Act (AIA) well under way. With such provisions as the expansion of the definition of prior art and creation of a first-to-file system, practice before the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has changed significantly.

Recognizing the challenges and opportunities that these patent reforms present, the Global Outsourcing Association of Lawyers (GOAL) is coming up with the Global IP ConfEx in San Francisco this November. One can expect this event to be a platform of thought provoking ideas and best practices from the legal and IP industry on subjects like Intellectual Property, Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, Intellectual Property Conferences among others from all around the globe with a great opportunity for networking and developing long-term business relations.
