  • Too often, eDiscovery professionals and investigators rely on methods - like screen printing - for social media discovery that are impossible to authenticate. And now, the Courts have taken notice. With a higher bar set for defensible collection in social media, it is time for a more practical approach to social discovery.

    This webcast examines best practices of social discovery, no expert should ignore:

    - Discoverability - including social media in eDiscovery plans and the impact on eDiscovery strategies
    - Defensibility and authenticity - supporting case law that demands the use of a robust investigative platform that captures diverse types of content and metadata
    - Challenges in dealing with this new data type - understanding common challenges associated with new forms of metadata and privacy issues

    Watch this webcast to learn how and why to incorporate an investigative platform to collect, search, preserve and manage social media evidence and how to do so defensibly.

    This webinar is free, but space is limited.
  • Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Lecorpio, will take place on December 11 at 6pm (GMT); 1pm (EST) and will discuss strategies for using patents defensively and offensively.

    In a patent-driven industry where being first to file is paramount, companies recognize the power of turning ideas into assets. More and more companies now choose to aggressively grow and diligently monitor their intellectual property (IP) portfolios, viewing them as critical business assets. Patent frontrunners IBM and Samsung have set the bar high by collectively securing more than 12,000 patents in 2013 alone. Moreover, over 75% of Google’s patents have been awarded in the last two years and the number of applications from the search giant as well as other Silicon Valley-based tech companies is skyrocketing.

    But as companies race to create more IP, how do innovation leaders ensure that their patent portfolio is aligned to strategic priorities? This webinar will discuss how to manage and create a strategic patent portfolio with two innovation leaders.

    •Dana Rao, Vice-President, Intellectual Property & Litigation, Adobe
    •Douglas Luftman, Vice President, Innovation Services & Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, NetApp
    •Bill Soward, COO, Lecorpio
    •James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)

    Key topics will include:
    •How to align the patent portfolio to business objectives
    •Ways to operationalize the patent process
    •Automating and systemizing IP
    •Managing patents for offensive and defensive strategies
    •Quality vs. speed

    The webinar is free to attend and will last about one hour. The audience is invited to submit questions throughout the webinar, which will be answered during a moderated Q&A session at the end.
