RQ&N Shareholder Michael K. Erickson presented “Copyright Litigation: Applying Fundamentals to 21st Century Technologies” at the Utah State Bar’s Spring Convention in St. George. Mr. Erickson’s practice emphasizes intellectual property litigation, including copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secret matters. In particular, he focuses on intellectual property disputes in computer, software, and Internet industries.
The convention hosted nearly 350 attorneys in St. George March 14–16 for its Spring Convention, the Bar’s annual gathering of 25 years. The Utah State Bar was established in 1931 and, under the authority of the Utah Supreme Court, regulates the practice of law. This includes administering the Bar exam, staffing the Office of Professional Conduct, and offering continuing legal education. Attorneys in Utah are required to attend 24 hours of continuing legal education every two years, including at least three hours of accredited ethics, with one of the three in professionalism and civility. The vision of the Utah State Bar is to lead society in the creation of a justice system that is understood, valued, respected, and accessible to all.
