Competitive Intelligence Acquisition and Reverse Engineering: Pitfalls and Best Practices in the US, the UK and Germany

Competitive intelligence gathering - including reverse engineering - is a critical component of R&D programs and business decision-making. But companies gathering competitive intelligence must remain cognizant of the attendant risks, and should promulgate written policies consistent with the company's mission, business ethics and the law.

Please join us for a 60-minute webinar addressing the legal risks faced by global businesses engaged in competitive intelligence and guidelines for mitigating those risks. The session will include:

  • An exploration of the pitfalls of competitive intelligence gathering
  • A review of instructive cases
  • Suggested best practices with respect to competitive intelligence policies
  • Suggested legal clearances for reverse engineering
