Please join us for a discussion on the significant trademark and patent decisions of 2019. Our panel will highlight the following: 

  • The four U.S. Supreme Court trademark cases from the Court's docket in 2019 (the two decided and the two still to come);
  • New initiatives in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for combating fraudulent filings;
  • Significant developments in the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) that impact both filing and litigation strategies; and
  • The ever-challenging subject-matter eligibility landscape.

This informative IP presentation promises to have something of interest for everyone.
