SUBMISSIONS to PLI Current

PLICurrent: The Journal of PLI Press is a quarterly legal journal dedicated to providing timely and relevant analysis, insight, and commentary on topics of interest to practicing attorneys and others in the legal profession. Each issue of PLI Current brings you original articles written by leading practitioners with expertise in a variety of practice areas.

As The Journal of PLI Press enters its third year, we continue striving to bring you expert coverage of legal, business, and professional topics you’ll find interesting and practical. Four of the ten original articles in this issue of PLI Current deal with international/global themes. The first tackles the turbulent world of U.S. economic sanctions even as major developments continued unfolding right up to the day this journal’s publication—including the lifting of sanctions on companies controlled by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and the imposition of sweeping sanctions against Venezuela’s state-owned oil company.

Berliner Corcoran & Rowe partners Daniel Fisher-Owens and Ben Flowe address U.S. export controls and related OFAC sanctions relating to commercial encryption items, e-commerce, and cloud computing—an extensive and detailed review that practitioners in this area will find invaluable.

If your interests involve business in the Chinese market, don’t miss Laura Wen-yu Young’s article on the challenges of protecting trade secrets in China—a topic whose importance is underscored by late-breaking developments involving China’s largest tech company. As this journal was being finalized for publication, U.S. prosecutors filed criminal charges against Huawei Technologies, claiming trade secret theft and bank fraud. While the article does not specifically address these allegations, its timely coverage provides valuable insights into the current environment from someone with significant experience and expertise in this area.

It has been less than a year since the GDPR came into force, and organizations continue to try to understand all of its implications. U.K.-based data protection specialist Richard Lawne examines the tensions between U.S. and European regulation of data held by cloud service providers in the EU.

“Preparing to Take a Deposition,” by Thomas R. Jackson, retired Jones Day partner and author of PLI Press’s Depositions Answer Book, provides expert insights and tips that every practitioner faced with questioning a witness will want to read. And if retirement is something you are pondering, you will want to be sure to check out the final article in this issue, from career management expert Kathleen Brady.

PLI Current: The Journal of PLI Press is a quarterly legal journal dedicated to providing timely and relevant analysis, insight, and commentary on topics of interest to practicing attorneys and others in the legal profession. Each issue of PLI Current brings you original articles written by leading practitioners with expertise in a variety of practice areas.

In the first article in this issue of PLI Current, the immigration experts at Fragomen take stock of the present state of immigration, and, recognizing that comprehensive reform is not likely in the current political climate, propose a number of specific changes that should ultimately be part of any sensible policy debate.

For almost its entire history, PLI has been known as a leader in the field of patent law, so in this issue we are featuring several original articles focused on timely issues in patent law and practice. The first, from one of the industry’s leading IP strategists, provides an in-depth overview of developments over the past year in subject-matter eligibility for software patents—an area that remains cloudy since the Supreme Court’s seminal decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International. The second patent-focused article addresses a different type of “subject-matter” issue: that of conflicts of interest that might restrict patent practitioners from representing certain clients. With little case law directly addressing the issue (until recently) and no specific rules of practice defining the scope of such conflicts, lawyers often stumble unwittingly into trouble. This article helps bring some of the issues into more clarity. The third in this series of articles, which will appeal to IP practitioners generally, explores some language issues involved in drafting effective indemnification clauses.

All attorneys should find value in “Tips from the Trenches to Make Your Company Less Attractive to Cyber Enforcement.” This article, from a trio of authors with perspectives from the corporate, government, and legal worlds, offers seven specific actions every lawyer can take to positively influence the management and mitigation of cyber risk.

The final article in this issue takes a sobering look at school safety in the aftermath of one of the deadliest years in America’s schools. This discussion considers the various responses from federal, state, and local governments, which continue to seek answers on how to prevent future incidents and to keep students safe from gun violence. It should be of interest not just to certain legal professionals, but to educators, parents, and all readers with school-age children in their lives.
