The U.S. Supreme Court's Impact on Intellectual Property 2023

Online Webinar

The Supreme Court Term is coming to an end in June and it has been a busy year for developments in intellectual property law. All told, the Supreme Court took up four IP cases this Term addressing several important issues, including copyright's fair use doctrine, the patent enablement requirement, trademark infringement claims challenging so-called expressive works, and the extraterritorial reach of the Lanham Act to provide civil remedies for the infringement of trademarks.

What is the impact of these decisions and what do they all mean to the big picture for companies with IP cases to defend or IP rights to manage? What is the effect on IP litigation and transactional issues moving forward? What are the cases and issues the Court could take up next Term?

With the current Term nearing its conclusion, our panel including former Supreme Court and Federal Circuit clerks and in-house counsel will take a hard look at Supreme Court IP decisions. We will also examine other IP cases to watch in 2023, and the current composition of the Court.
