This Month in Intellectual Property: October 2022

Leslie A. Demers M. Oren Epstein Ryan P. Bisaillon

On October 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.

Counsel Leslie Demers and Oren Epstein and associate Ryan Bisaillon discussed recent industry news including copyright law, fair use and tattoos; the Second Circuit’s exploration of the demarcation between copyright protections and rights of publicity; dos and don’ts in the wake of the Federal Circuit’s recent opinion finding that contract language may doom patents by virtue of the on-sale bar; and a case introducing key considerations involving ornamental designs and trademarks.
