On January 25, 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.

Speakers intellectual property litigation partner Anthony Dreyer, practice co-head Douglas Nemec and counsel Edward Tulin discussed lawsuits by video game developers and publishers alleging that “cheat codes” violate copyright law; trademark legislation; the Federal Circuit’s power to erase jury verdicts based on claim scope issues; potential congressional reforms to address venue, patentability and Patent Trial and Appeal Board procedures; and “bread and butter” trade secret issues.
