This course will teach students how to apply the law of trademarks to everyday practice. Through a series of class projects and exercises, we will examine a variety of issues that confront trademark users and their lawyers, including the selection and clearance of new marks, obtaining and maintaining a federal registration, the proper use of marks, the negotiation and drafting of trademark licenses and co-existence agreements, strategies for enforcing trademarks, and prosecuting, defending, and avoiding administrative and civil litigation.
