Lawyering in a World of Convergence: An Exploration of Emerging Tech/IP Issues

In today’s world, formerly separate industries are starting to overlap and, in some cases, converge. What are the issues that IP and/or transactional lawyers are facing (and will face) in this changing world? Distinguished senior legal executives from leading entertainment, automotive & IoT companies will present, and compare & contrast (e.g., via a moderated interactive session), their perspectives, experiences & expectations from their respective industries. In the process, they will also share thoughts from the U.S. and Japanese / non-U.S. perspectives.
