Partner Brian Rosenbloom will Chair RAP session 3, "Patents: Prudent Investments with Future Potential or Inefficient Capital Allocation?" on February 27, 2024, during the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) 2024 in Long Beach, California. The full conference runs from February 25-29, 2024.

Every year, the APEC Committee handpicks a handful of hot topics and bring together a panel of distinguished experts to engage in a dynamic exchange of views. The RAP Sessions are structured around pivotal questions designed to spark debate, ensuring a representation of diverse perspectives. Kickstarting the session with introductory remarks from our panelists, the floor is then open to the audience to weigh in with insights, challenge the experts, and steer the conversation with your questions. Get ready for an invigorating exchange of ideas that's as informative as it is animated, and walk away with a deeper understanding of the latest trends and controversies in power electronics.

This RAP session will answer your questions regarding how best to protect your innovations and other valuable intellectual property (IP). Is seeking a patent always the best approach? Are you better off with other forms of protection or no protection at all? What are the benefits of seeking patent protection and are they worth the costs? Is trade-secret protection an option? This RAP session provides answers to these questions from a variety of viewpoints. 

APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. This is not just a designer’s conference; APEC has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics:

  • Equipment OEMs that use power supplies and dc-dc converters in their equipment
  • Designers of power supplies, dc-dc converters, motor drives, uninterruptable power supplies, inverters and any other power electronic circuits, equipment and systems
  • Manufacturers and suppliers of components and assemblies used in power electronics
  • Manufacturing, quality and test engineers involved with power electronics equipment
