5 Ways the New Trademark Modernization Act Will Change Your Practice
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.

ICANN’s Next Round of New gTLDs – Getting Your .brand and Your Team Ready
It has been nearly 10 years since ICANN allowed new applications for branded registries, and much has changed since then.  In a world where the Internet seems increasingly unsafe and chaotic, a brand having its own “corner” of the domain name space over which it can operate greater control has its appeal. Paul McGrady, a global thought leader in the ICANN/domain name space, will share his insights into timing, business case, and process for new gTLDs, focusing on .brands. The session will touch on preventing a third party from obtaining a registry consisting of your brand name, as well as the pitfalls of the application process and the expenses tied with ongoing registry operations.
