Other Barks & Bites for Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Business dogWelcome to our weekly installment of Other Barks & Bites! This is the first edition of this news feature sporting a title we’ve chosen from over a dozen suggestions provided by our readers (Credit to the reader known as American Cowboy for offering this idea). We choose this title because it not only fits the IPWatchdog theme but it also conveys the sense that these headlines are a collection of stories that we want to feature for our readers, but haven’t had the time to write about in depth for one reason or another.

Once again, we’re offering a quick look at the wider world of intellectual property as well as developments on Wall Street and Capitol Hill, which could impact business as well as research & development.

This week’s news headlines include nomination hearings for the potential incoming U.S. Commerce Secretary, the Supreme Court’s granting certiorari for an important case in biologics, a patent infringement suit targeting the NFL, the expiration of copyright protecting the works of a very influential science fiction author from the early 20th century, and another sports figure — this time UFC  Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor — filing trademark applications.
