Assouline and Berlowe Registered Patent Attorney Greg Popowitz recently recorded a lecture for the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education (NACLE), focusing on a general Intellectual Property Overview and 2019 IP case law update.
Mr. Popowitz detailed the fundamental differences of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets and the nuances of each area of Intellectual Property. He also discussed some recent key court decisions, including Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) holding the disparagement clause of the Lanham Act unconstitutional under the First Amendment and paving the way for the mark F.U.C.T. In addition, Mr. Popowitz discussed SCOTOS’ resolution of a circuit split, holding that a party must have completed the registration process before filing suit in federal court, as opposed to simply applying for protection.
