Course Description

2019 was a year of significant impact in the world of copyright and trademark law, and 2020 has so far followed suit. It can be difficult for a practitioner to keep up with the ever-changing world of intellectual property law. New technologies, new theories of liability, and a burgeoning Federal docket have changed the field and the practice in the last few years.  

In this program, Oscar Michelen, a New York litigator and an adjunct professor of law, will guide you through the important recent cases impacting copyright and trademark law. In addition to surveying the most critical and key cases, Mr. Michelen will also discuss trends and changes in practice in these fields, making sure you are up-to-date on not just the state of the law, but also on what is happening in courthouses around the country in these two escalating fields of practice.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review recent cases in copyright and trademark law that have made an impact in late 2019 and 2020
  2. Discuss the noteworthy cases that SCOTUS will be looking at in 2020
  3. Identify current trends in practice in these two areas of law

Course was good on its own but also fun to see how some of the cliffhangers from the 2019 update worked themselves through the courts.

Mr. Michelen was excellent to listen to. He incorporated just the right amount of detail and complexity. I was particularly interested in what he had to say about the Google v. Oracle case, which I have used in the course I teach about Law and Entrepreneurship/Innovation.
