Kappos é amplamente reconhecido como um dos principais líderes mundiais no campo da propriedade intelectual, incluindo o desenvolvimento de normas, leis e práticas globais de propriedade intelectual. Em 2009, foi nomeado Subsecretário de Comércio e Diretor da USPTO pelo Presidente Barack Obama, e esta nomeação foi confirmada pelo Senado dos Estados Unidos. Como Diretor da USPTO, ele foi fundamental para a realização da maior reforma legislativa do sistema de patentes dos EUA em gerações através da legislação de reforma de patentes assinada pelo Presidente em setembro de 2011. A implementação subsequente conduzida por Kappos incluiu o período de envolvimento público e regulamentação mais abrangente na história do USPTO. Kappos pediu demissão deste cargo a partir de 1 de fevereiro de 2013.
De acordo com Allen Parker, Sócio-Presidente da Cravath, "Dave será uma excelente adição para a nossa empresa, apoiando nossos clientes quando eles estiverem tratando de suas questões de propriedade intelectual mais complexas, incluindo aquelas que envolvem a sua atividade de negócio, bem como seus assuntos de contencioso e antitruste."
Parker prosseguiu dizendo que "a experiência de Dave será altamente relevante para um grande número de clientes da Cravath, incluindo aqueles nas indústrias de biotecnologia, consumidor, indústrias em geral, mídia, farmacêutica, tecnologia e telecomunicações. A empresa representa diversas empresas dentro de cada um destes setores, muitas das quais já estão há décadas trabalhando com a Cravath com relação a seus assuntos de propriedade intelectual."
Antes de entrar para o USPTO em 2009, Kappos ocupou vários cargos executivos no departamento jurídico da IBM, a maior detentora de propriedades intelectuais do mundo. Ele entrou para a IBM em 1983, passando mais de 25 anos na empresa. Kappos trabalhou primeiro como engenheiro de desenvolvimento e, depois, como advogado. De 2003 a 2009, em seu último cargo na IBM, ele atuou como vice-presidente e consultor jurídico assistente de propriedade intelectual da empresa. Neste cargo, Kappos administrou as atividades globais de propriedade intelectual da IBM, incluindo todos os aspectos de proteção de patente, marca comercial, direitos autorais e segredos comerciais.
"Eu estou simplesmente animado por entrar para a Cravath", disse Kappos. "Tive a sorte de trabalhar de perto com a Cravath em muitas questões de propriedade intelectual ao longo dos anos como um cliente da IBM e desenvolvi uma estima extremamente alta pela capacidade única da empresa de obter os melhores resultados possíveis lidando com as questões de propriedade intelectual contestadas e corporativas mais importantes e complexas. De fundamental importância para mim, a Cravath lida com a propriedade intelectual no contexto dos objetivos comerciais do cliente, com conhecimentos jurídicos absolutamente de primeira classe, tanto na área empresarial, quanto no litigioso."
Kappos foi amplamente elogiado por sua liderança na área de propriedade intelectual. Em 2012, ele foi introduzido no Hall da Fama da Propriedade Intelectual pela revista Intellectual Asset Management Magazine, e foi indicado com uma das 50 pessoas mais influentes em propriedade intelectual pela Managing IP. Em 2011, ele foi nomeado profissional de propriedade intelectual do ano pela Intellectual Property Owners Association.
Kappos é graduado em Engenharia Elétrica e Computacional pela Universidade da Califórnia, Davis, e possui diploma de pós-graduação em direito (Juris Doctor) da Universidade da Califórnia, Berkeley.
A Cravath é um escritório de advocacia líder, reconhecido nas áreas de propriedade intelectual, fusões e aquisições, finanças corporativas e contencioso. Em 2012, a empresa foi nomeada "Escritório de Advocacia do Ano" para contencioso em propriedade intelectual pelo U.S. News & World Report – 2011-2012 Best Law Firms Survey e, no mesmo ano, foi classificada na primeira categoria por seu trabalho em fusões e aquisições, títulos, banco comercial e contencioso na Chambers USA e na Legal 500.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
