During the past two years, IP got pretty muddled. No industry has made it through the COVID-19 pandemic unchanged, and IP is no exception. Enforcement and “shakedowns” saw a marked increase, and IP owners struggled for additional revenue streams while everyone grappled with changes in the law that altered IP rights. In this free CLE, garnished with ethics credits, we’ll combine overviews of the past two years in the business and litigation of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets into a cocktail of news you can use. In the mix: Practical implications of the recently implemented Trademark Modernization Act, patent treatment for software, IP for cannabis, takeaways from the newly minted Copyright Claims Board, and related ethical considerations.
