About
The Trademark Modernization Act was signed into law in December, and it makes significant changes to the United States Trademark Act of 1946, a.k.a. the Lanham Act.

Wonder how these changes will affect the prosecution and litigation practices of trademark firms, startups, and businesses? Rukayatu Tijani—a former federal judicial law clerk turned intellectual property attorney and the found of Firm for the Culture—will break down the new legislation to tell you what it means for you and your clients. This is sure to be an event that brand owners, trademark attorneys, and anyone interested in protecting their IP will not want to miss.

In this session, Rukayatu will discuss:
* How the Trademark Modernization Act effectively allows third parties to step into the shoes of the Examining Attorney during the trademark application process;
* How the amendment to the Lanham Act is changing how trademark rights holders proceed before Federal Courts; and
* How the Modernization Act helps third parties avoid costly and lengthy inter partes cancellation proceedings, including how the new process saves clients, businesses, and law firms time, money, and stress.
