Read the following scenario:

You are the CEO of Bonner, a U.S.-based farm equipment corporation. Bonner recently announced the release of an innovative new tractor with technology based on a patented invention developed by Bonner’s engineers. Bonner’s vice president, who is aware of the upcoming product offering, bought 100,000 shares of Bonner stock prior to the announcement. You found out about the vice president’s stock purchase on the day of the announcement.

One week after the announcement, Bonner received a letter from a German farm equipment corporation, accusing Bonner of patent infringement based on the new tractor’s technology.

Bonner’s board of directors asked you to assess the vice president’s liability for the stock purchase and the company’s options for resolving the German corporation’s patent infringement claim.

Prepare an infographic for the board (e.g., Memo incorporating a visual, or a Graph, Chart, Table, powerpoint presentation etc. – can use Microsoft®, PowerPoint®, Piktochart®, Publisher, Glogster®, etc.) in which you discuss the following:

  • Explain why Bonner is the owner of the invention (what are the intellectual property rights owned by Bonner in the invention)
  • Suggest a method of dispute resolution (e.g., arbitration, mediation, litigation, WIPO dispute resolution), why that method would be desirable for resolving the dispute, and how and where the dispute resolution should be held (United States, foreign country, online, etc.).
  • Assess the liability of Bonner’s vice president for purchasing the corporation’s stock prior to the announcement of the new tractor.
  • Assess whether Bonner has any legal or ethical duties to disclose the stock purchase, and if so, to whom?
  • Discuss risk management procedures Bonner can adopt to avoid or reduce situations like these from happening in the future.

As a guide, if you do a Powerpoint, it should be 7-10 slides.  If you do something like a memo with a visual incorporated into it, it should be about 525-1000 words.  If you do a chart or a table, it should be about 350-725 words.

The point of the task is to provide a quick, clear and concise visual for the Board.
