Course Description

The year 2019 was of significant impact in the world of copyright and trademark law, and 2020 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 the last few years, and it can be difficult for a practitioner to keep up. 

In this program Oscar Michelen, a New York litigator and adjunct professor of law, will help guide you through the most important copyright and trademark cases that came out of the Supreme Court’s 2018 - 2019 term, and what is upcoming in 2020. In addition to surveying the most critical cases, Mr. Michelen will also discuss the recent trends and practice updates in these fields so that attorneys can stay up-to-date on the state of the law and what is happening in these escalating fields of practice in courthouses around the country.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify recent cases in copyright and trademark law that made an impact in late 2018 and 2019
  2. Discuss the noteworthy cases SCOTUS will be looking at in 2020
  3. Analyze current trends in practice in these two areas of IP law
