Floyd Mandell, national co-chair of the Intellectual Property practice, was chosen as part of a select panel to participate in the discussion “Cutting Edge Issues in Intellectual Property Litigation” at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, September 12, at the ABA Business Section meeting in Chicago.
The panel is comprised of the Hon. Richard Posner, Appellate Judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals who has written extensively on cutting-edge issues involving intellectual property; Stan Pierre-Louis, Deputy General counsel at Viacom and lead strategist on the Viacom v. YouTube litigation; David Franklyn, Professor of Law and Director of the J. Thomas McCarthy Institute at the University of San Francisco; and Floyd. The discussion will focus on what business lawyers and in-house counsel need to know about cutting-edge issues in copyright, trademark and patent law to be in the know for their business clients.
At 9:00 a.m. on Friday, associate Peter Wilson will participate in a panel discussion on “Housing Finance and TILA: A Look at the Supreme Court’s Cert Grant in Jesinoski v. Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. and Other Important Issues Arising Under the Truth In Lending Act.” The panel will discuss Jesinoski, in which the Court will consider whether a borrower exercises the right to rescind under Section 1635 of the Truth In Lending Act (TILA) by notifying the creditor in writing within three years of the consummation of the transaction or must file a lawsuit within three years. The panel will also explore whether a borrower must tender the amount owing to effect a rescission, and look at other recent housing finance and TILA issues.
