This Month in Intellectual Property: December 2021

Anthony J. Dreyer Christopher B. McKinley

On December 14, Skadden presented the latest installment of “This Month in Intellectual Property,” a monthly webinar series created to keep IP practitioners and in-house counsel up to date on recent court decisions, legislative developments, key filings and emerging trends in IP. Covering all facets of IP, including trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets and rights of publicity, the webinar series serves as a one-stop-shop for news that covers the entirety of this rapidly evolving industry.

New York intellectual property litigation partner Anthony Dreyer provided an overview of NFTs in relation to copyright, trademark and right of publicity. New York intellectual property litigation associate Michael Salik discussed the trademark case Sulzer Mixpac before the Supreme Court and a recent decision showing the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s increased willingness to cancel trademark registration due to fraud. Palo Alto intellectual property litigation associate Christopher McKinley reviewed Kannuu Pty Ltd. v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, in which the Federal Circuit considers whether a nondisclosure agreement’s forum selection clause extends to Patent Trial and Appeal Board proceedings.
