Nuclear Scare - False Marking Violation - Offshore Energy Issues - "Reverse Brain Drain"
March 24, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us this week on Capital Thinking with guest host Vincent Frillici as we are first rejoined by Joshua Greene to discuss U.S. nuclear policy in light of the crisis in Japan, as well as whether we are, or will be, equipped to handle similar situations if disaster strikes here in the United States. Next, we hear from Kevin Bell on one of the hottest topics in IP law right now--with 700 cases filed in the past 15 months--the false marking penalty (35 U.S.C. 29). Then, Philip Bangert and Gordon Arbuckle will join us to discuss issues related to U.S. offshore energy exploration and production, including the moratorium previously imposed on offshore drilling, the current permitting environment and possible legislative actions. Finally, immigration attorney Shaoul Aslan will share his thoughts on the so called "reverse brain drain" phenomenon and if it is directly correlated to the restrictions set by the U.S. immigration law.
