Trademark Law for Paralegals

September 24

Understanding how to file for and enforce a trademark can be crucial to defending your clients goods and services against unlawful copies.

Many are familiar with the term trademark but have trouble distinguishing trademarks from the other forms of intellectual property such as copyrights and patents. This topic will explain the key differences among intellectual property and help you understand what constitutes a protectible trademark. This material will also explain the federal registration process within the USPTO, including how to respond to office actions. The topic will also discuss post-registration steps, like policing and enforcing a trademark, as well as determining whether there is any infringing use. The material will also provide a general overview of trademark litigation, including establishing the elements for a cause of action under the Lanham Act and defenses in response to an infringement claim.
