Orrick collaborated with the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law to present ‘The CASE Act and the Trademark Modernization Act Webinar: New Opportunities and Risks for Companies and Brands.’ The webinar was recorded on May 13, 2021 and is available for viewing below.

Online Webinar Description: IP Team members Sheryl Garko, Bob O’Connell and Caroline Simons are joined by Stacey Lantagne, Associate Dean for Faculty Development at University of Mississippi School of Law, and Erin Michael, Senior Counsel at New Balance to discuss the recent and significant updates to IP law with the 2020 passage of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act and the Trademark Modernization Act (TMA).

This webinar covers the debate over what the new Copyright Claims Board should look like, the enshrining of the presumption of irreparable harm for Lanham Act claims, new expungement and re-exam proceedings under the Trademark Modernization Act, and what all this means for companies and brands looking to adjust their strategies to enforce their IP or defend themselves from plaintiffs.
