Tues., July 23, 2019 | 10:00-11:15 a.m. CT | Live MBHB Webinar via WebEx

MBHB will present a mid-year review of the top stories impacting trademark and copyright law. Topics will include:

  • Recent trademark and copyright cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, including Fourth Estate, Rimini, and more discussions on “immoral” or “scandalous” trademarks.
  • Recent federal court decisions of note, including Apple being allowed to rely on foreign priority dates for its IPAD mark.
  • Recent TTAB decisions of note, including discussions on sufficiency of intent in intent-to-use applications, and trends regarding generic and “highly descriptive” marks.
  • The impact of big data on trademarks – clearance, prosecution strategy, policing, and enforcement.
  • An increased pressure on companies to address social, environmental, and health issues – and the interplay between trademarks and corporate social responsibility that ensues.
  • Happenings outside of the United States, including new trademark laws in Canada and the implications for trademarks in the United Kingdom and the European Union in the wake of Brexit.
