To Patent or Not to Patent? Preserving Trade Secret Status During Prosecution

by Amy Van Zant | December.10.2018

Amid a growing body of unsettled law regarding the patentability of software and business methods patents, companies are increasingly choosing to maintain their valuable innovations as trade secrets rather than risk a rejected patent application. There are pros and cons to both forms of intellectual property protection. However, the decision need not be binary – at least not during the pendency of the patent application. Instead, by opting to go the “non-publication” route, inventors can maintain trade secret protection over an invention during the patenting process and decide whether to ...

Troubled Transactions

This increase corresponds directly to the increase in the variety and complexity of the types of bonds issued, as well as the financing structures used and the sources of repayment and security for the bonds. Other contributing factors include the increasing complexity of tax and other laws pursuant to which bonds are issued, the requirements for disclosure of information, the duties of issuers, trustees, underwriters and other participants after, as well as before, issuance of the bonds, and the greatly increased enforcement attention to the municipal bond sector from the IRS and the SEC. As ...
