Politics, Policy and Legislation at the Intersection of Intellectual Property

View Session Speakers

CLEWith the 2022 mid-terms less than two months away, it appears that 118th Congress could look quite different. Who are the players behind the scenes that are shaping intellectual property policy in the 117th Congress, and are they expected to remain in the 118th Congress? What issues will be front and center when Congress returns in January and really starts its Committee work in February 2023? Does anything have a chance to be enacted during the waning days of the 117th Congress? What regulatory reforms will the Patent Office likely pursue? Is there any hope for a much needed update to the Copyright Act?

* A Note on Materials: We apply for MCLE in Virginia, as well as in several other jurisdictions, which provide reciprocity for many attorneys, such as those practicing in CA and NY, for example (see the MCLE tab in the navigation bar above). MCLE regulations require substantive writing on the topic covered during the presentation. The materials provided, often published by IPWatchdog.com authors and contributors, relate to the topic to be discussed but are not intended to pigeon-hole guest speakers or moderators in any way. They are intended to be informative and elucidate the issues that will be discussed, although not necessarily represent any particular point of view that will be taken by a speaker or panelist. To date the articles we have selected have always been sufficient to satisfy MCLE authorities.
