Course Description
This course will provide an introduction to the legal protection under US law for trademarks, service marks and trade dress. Much of the course will concentrate on the key federal statute in this field, the Lanham Act (15 USC 1051 et seq), but it will also cover related state and common law doctrines and, to a limited extent, the relevant international agreements. The course will also consider conflicts between trademark law and the First Amendment, as well as contrasts between trademark law and other forms of intellectual property protection, such as copyright law, patent law and the right of publicity.
