Elon Law Associate Professor David S. Levine traveled to Williamsburg, Virginia, in October for the 28th Annual Intellectual Property Seminar: The Evolving Landscape of IP, co-hosted by the Virginia CLE and the Intellectual Property Section of the Virginia State Bar.

Levine addressed the legal implications of the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, legislation that generated concerns from Levine and other scholars in recent years as it worked its way through Congress. His Oct. 22 presentation assisted lawyers from across the state who work in intellectual privacy, trade secrets, and privacy. 

Levine also spoke Oct. 28 at Marquette University School of Law in Wisconsin. His address, “Confidentiality Creep, Opportunistic Privacy and Dual-Use Secrecy: The Professions in an Age of Information Capture,” was part of Marquette Law’s IP Colloquium Speaker Series.

He is also the founder and host of Hearsay Culture on KZSU-FM, an information policy, intellectual property law and technology talk show named as a top five podcast in the ABA’s Blawg 100 of 2008.

His scholarship focuses on the operation of intellectual property law at the intersection of technology and public life, specifically information flows in the lawmaking and regulatory process and intellectual property law’s impact on public and private secrecy, transparency and accountability.
