On March 29, Skadden presented a Special Ethics Edition 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 included New York intellectual property litigation head Douglas Nemec, partner Anthony Dreyer and associate Leslie Demers, who discussed “fraudulent” trademark applications that have led to sanctions for applicants, spoliation of ESI and a Supreme Court ruling that inadvertent mistakes are not a ground for invalidating copyright registrations. In the patent and trade secret context, the panelists discussed best practices for communication between clients and outside counsel and the recent scrutiny of judicial practices in cases.
