This session identifies 5 important changes the new Trademark Modernization Act of 2020 brings – and provides practical guidance for leveraging those changes to your clients’ best advantage. You’ll get tips to consider – and be alerted to potential traps to avoid – when dealing with (1) the changes to proceedings to cancel registrations of marks that are not in use; (2) the now-codified rebuttable presumption of irreparable harm for plaintiffs seeking injunctive relief under the Lanham Act; (3) two new ex parte procedures; (4) letters of protest, newly elevated from regulatory to statutory level; and (5) new timeframes that the USPTO can set for Office Action response periods.
