The U.S. Supreme Court's Impact on Intellectual Property 2019


The U.S. Supreme Court Term that ended in June marked another busy year for developments in intellectual property law. All told, the Supreme Court took up six IP cases addressing several important issues, including cases regarding the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, copyright law, and the effect of bankruptcy on IP licenses.

In this recorded webinar from July 10, 2019, our panel of former Supreme Court and Federal Circuit clerks and in-house counsel took a hard look at recent Supreme Court IP decisions, examined other IP cases to watch in 2019, and the current composition of the Court.
