Causes of Inadvertent Disclosure of Privileged Documents and Strategies for Protecting Privileged Documents

Whitepaper

TASA ID: 1793

There is an inherent difficulty in keeping privileged documents and especially work product in e-discovery. This problem can cause the most serious damages to litigants, and consequences including anything from direct loss of cases to protracted procedural complications are reflected in a large number of cases. Each time when a privileged document is leaked, there is no real remedy. Clawing-back documents gives the producing party only a right to stop the receiving party from using the leaked documents directly. However, nothing can stop the receiving party from collecting information from other sources to strengthen its case by using the leaked documents as road maps. One should expect that the receiving party will keep copies of leaked documents for reference and may use them to cross-check anything affecting its case. Therefore, this problem must be addressed seriously. I will discuss what the main cause for the frequent leaking of privileged documents.

Analyzing Architectural Designs for Copyright Disputes

TASA ID: 10524

Introduction

There’s nothing simple about architectural copyright litigation. Activity generated from The Architectural Works Copyright Protection Act of 1990 continues to increase. The law continues to develop, but factual realities, though seemingly obvious, are often complex and difficult to compare What is an architectural work? It is a building design embodied in any tangible medium of expression, including a building itself, architectural plans, or drawings. Overall form is copyrightable. Exterior and interior spatial arrangements and elements of these arrangements are copyrightable. Individual standard features are not copyrightable. These presuppositions raise further questions. 

A Case Study of Patent Abuse (PART II): Patent Trolls on the Run —The Printing Industry Is Winning!

Whitepaper

TASA ID: 7210

This is a follow-up to my July 2016 white paper entitled, “A Case Study of Patent Abuse: Printing Industry Faces New Nemesis Impacting Growth and Employment—Patent Trolls.”

That white paper received enormous industry press coverage, and to my understanding was used as part of court proceedings resulting in the dismissal of two long and visible printing industry cases brought on by patent trolls, CTP Innovations (CTP) and High Quality Printing Innovations (HQPI). However, since then, two new cases emerged by patent trolls attempting to threaten and extort funds from printing industry companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using standard technology common for doing day-to-day business in the printing and related industries.

A Case Study of Patent Abuse: Printing Industry Faces New Nemesis Impacting Growth and Employment —Patent Trolls

Whitepaper

TASA ID: 7210

Patent trolls, the epitome of greed, thoughtlessness, and unethical behavior, are impacting the survival, growth, and development of printing and related companies.

 

The printing industry in the United States has been in a state of decline over the past 20 years (from approximately 55,000 companies to under 30,000 today). Traditionally a low-profit industry, printing companies and their suppliers are trying to find ways of increasing products and services focusing on digital technologies and related applications in order to increase profits and to save jobs. Patent trolls are inhibiting such growth and are causing companies to consider closing, downsizing, and laying off employees because they cannot afford to absorb the huge fees being demanded by the trolls, while also maintaining or growing business. The trolls are equivalent to extortionists with no sense of business morals and ethics, or of the nation’s push to grow companies, produce jobs, and keep or bring back as much business as possible to the United States.
