The U.S. Supreme Court's Impact on Intellectual Property 2020


The Supreme Court Term coming to an end in June has been another busy year for developments in intellectual property law. All told, the Supreme Court took up seven IP cases this Term addressing several important issues, including cases regarding trademark and copyright law, and which aspects of the PTAB's decisions to institute review of a patent can be appealed.

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 of 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 2020, and the current composition of the Court.
