Description

Creating a Public Interest Trademark Bar

ABSTRACT: In the first decade of the twentieth century, a public interest copyright and patent bar developed; public interest organizations now routinely take an interest in copyright and patent issues bearing on public rights, from patents on breast cancer detection to copyright term extension, and they are active in courts, before Congress, and before administrative agencies dealing with IP.  A public interest bar with similar attention to trademark law and policy has yet to develop, but it’s time.  Professor Tushnet will discuss recent amicus work and related efforts to speak for the public interest in trademark matters.
