Description

A course to delve into trademark and unfair competition practice before the USPTO, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and in state and federal courts. The course will advance practice oriented trademark issues including: the identification, protection and enforcement of trademark rights; the relief that can be acquired through enforcement of those rights; the role of lawyer as counselor in adopting trademarks as part of the branding process; avoiding infringement of others' trademarks; and the assignment and licensing of trademarks. The course will probe these same concepts in other jurisdictions, as well.
