Intellectual Property attorneys Stephen Baird and Bradley Walz will both be presenters at the 2015 Midwest IP Institute in Minneapolis.  Baird will speak on Thursday, September 17, on the topic "The Year in Trademark Law: Attorney’s Fees, Laches, Fair Use, and More."   His topic will examine the past year’s most significant trademark decisions and their practical implications for in-house and outside counsel. The issues run the gamut from new standards for attorney’s fee awards; risks associated with intent-to-use trademark applications; unexpected landmines in exclusive licenses; trade dress protection and liability for product packaging designs; the legality of utilizing third-party trademarks in video games; and the applicability of laches to trademark infringement claims.

Walz will speak on Friday, September 18, on the topic "Two Hot Topics for Trademark and Copyright Lawyers: Social Media Takedown Strategies and Letters of Protest."  Attendees will learn what letters of protest are, when to use them as part of an opposition strategy, and the different standards of review.  The topic will also review best practices for quickly and effectively enforcing IP owners’ rights in the social media space.
