Question Description

The purpose of this assignment is to analyze the effect of domestic and international regulatory agencies and court systems on business transactions and dispute resolution.

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 Phrase Outline on a Word Document for the board in which you prepare to address the Board on the following:

(Note there is a Sample Phrase Outline in the Center for Writing Excellence in the Library under Samples in the Tutorials and Guides section)

  • Compare the resolution of the patent dispute in a U.S. court with the resolution of the dispute using the World Intellectual Property Organization's (WIPO) dispute resolution program. Search the internet to review WIPO's dispute resolution program. (Information about WIPO's dispute resolution program may be located on their website by searching the Internet for WIPO).
  • 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.

Create a 350- to 525-word letter in response to the German farm equipment company in which you:

  • Explain why Bonner is the owner of the invention
  • Discuss 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.).

Cite a minimum of two references.

Format your letter in Memo format, (with a Reference Page) and separately submit your Outline

Ref: Tractor technology patent infringement
Based on the letter you sent to us, Bonner wishes to inform you that we have not
unfledged any patent in the technology we used in making our modern tractor. The technology
we used in making our tractor came from extensive research and trials from our team of
engineers. We also have the patent for the technology indicating that we invented the technology
used and that we did not copy any material or features in developing the technology or the
prototype in making out tractor. Bonner is convinced that we may have similar technology but it
does not make it the same as yours. Therefor...
