Copyright and Trademark Litigation: A View from the Bench

With nearly 8,000 copyright and trademark cases filed in federal district courts every year, who is better situated to comment on copyright and trademark litigation than the United States District Judges who preside over those cases? This panel of jurists will discuss current issues in copyright and trademark litigation and how they can be addressed effectively in the courtroom. Potential discussion topics include surviving a motion to dismiss, the use of expert evidence, standards for statutory damages, the work made for hire and fair use doctrines, as well establishing willfulness, the requirements for recovering an infringer’s profits and more.
