NOVEMBER 16 – LUNCHEON-MEETING
Attorney William ‘Bill’ Meyer III
“My Adventures in Intellectual Property”Attorney Meyer began practicing business law in Hawai`i in 1979. His practice emphasizes intellectual property law (including copyright, trademark and right of publicity licensing and registration, entertainment, trade secret, art and advertising matters); government relations; real estate matters; and related dispute resolution including litigation, arbitration and mediation. For more than three decades, Bill has provided creative legal and business guidance to a broad spectrum of individuals, companies and educational institutions, both in Hawai`i and on the mainland, including intellectual property owners, licensors and licensees such as artists, writers, photographers, television and film producers, composers, software and game developers, publishers, advertisers, broadcasters, art gallery owners, entertainers, recording artists, musicians, record labels, architects, scientists, apparel designers and merchandisers. Bill’s clients have included the University of Hawai`i at Manoa, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, local, national and international media companies and many of Hawaii’s top recording artists, record labels and film makers. Bill’s government relations work has promoted the diversification of Hawaii’s economy through the adoption of legislation which has enhanced the development of the creative and high tech industries. Bill’s real estate related practice has focused on the resolution of complex disputes involving real estate development and sales transactions, land use, eminent domain, construction defects, government bid disputes and real estate broker issues. Bill has taught at the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawai`i at Manoa; the Pacific New Media Workshop, University of Hawai`i at Manoa; and the Hawai`i Music Institute at Windward Community College and served as a court appointed mediator for the United States District Court for the District of Hawai`i in connection with intellectual property issues. He is past Chair of the Intellectual Property & Technology Section of the Hawai`i State Bar Association, and a frequent speaker on intellectual property, music, art, advertising, e‐commerce and Internet law topics, and has authored numerous articles and other materials on these topics, including continuing legal education materials for the Hawai`i State Bar Association and other organizations and publishers.
