Increasingly, the globalization of technology markets has complicated how businesses and individuals protect and enforce their intellectual property rights. While international laws generally protect rights in patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks, the enforcement of such rights is complicated by unique requirements of how discovery functions within individual nations.

This drafting team will examine issues arising from this new reality, focusing its guidance on what are the best practices to ensure that the parties to United States patent and trade secret litigation with international components can ensure that they receive adequate discovery from all foreign sources so as to ensure that their claims and defenses are adequately presented to the courts addressing such disputes.
