January 17: Copyright and Trademark Law: The Uncomfortable Interface

Copyright and trademark law both create different federal rights that provide different terms of protection. Some courts have a difficult time evaluating when (1) both are or should be available to a plaintiff in litigation, (2) the ownership of one constitutes a defense against infringement of the other in litigation, and (3) one is or should be harder to plead in litigation. This session will discuss applicable legal principles and relevant case law to help understand this area of law.
