Course Description

It can be difficult for a practitioner to keep up with the ever-changing world of intellectual property law - 2018 was a year of significant impact in the world of copyright and trademark law and 2019 looks like it will likely follow suit. New technologies, new theories of liability, and a burgeoning federal docket have changed the field and the practice in just the last few years.

This program, taught by Oscar Michelen, a New York litigator and an adjunct professor of law, will guide you through critical recent cases impacting copyright and trademark law. In addition, the course will discuss the trends and changes in the practice, including what is happening in courthouses around the country in these escalating areas of law.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss recent cases in copyright and trademark law
  2. Analyze current trends in the practice of copyright and trademark law
  3. Make predictions for the future of intellectual property practice
