February 13, 12:15-1:30pm
AUWCL Professors will moderate a discussion of recent and proposed changes in intellectual property legislation, court decisions and administrative practice that will profoundly affect the field. Topics for discussion may include proposals to re-organize the Copyright Office and amend the Copyright Act, recent and pending legislative reform in patent law, developments in trademark law, including recent jurisprudence of the federal courts, and proposals for changes in international intellectual property law through trade agreements and in the World Intellectual Property Organization. Alumni will be invited to reflect on how these and other changes are affecting their practice and what advice they have for students entering the field.
Moderators: Michael Carroll, Vicki Philips, and Peter Jaszi
