It appears I have overlooked highlighting to our readers an upcoming opportunity to advance and hone your trademark knowledge and perspective. Here is a link to the pdf brochure for the event.

On Wednesday March 2, starting at 1:15 PM (after the conclusion of the morning session on Introduction to Trademark Law), in downtown Minneapolis, we’ll be discussing these interesting topics and hearing from several dynamite speakers, including Jackie Leimer of Chicago-Kent Law School (former President of INTA and former Chief Trademark Counsel of Kraft), Paul Mussell of Wells-Fargo, Mark Masnick of the famed Techdirt Blog; Craig Krummen of Winthrop & Weinstine, Ann Wessberg of Target Brands, Barb Grahn of Oppenheimer, Jack Clifford of Merchant & Gould, and Brad Walz of Winthrop & Weinstine:

  • "Strategies for Dealing with ‘Trademark Bullies’"
  • "Update on Online Trademark Issues, Moblie and Social Media"
  • "Trademark Due Diligence in Mergers & Acquisitions"
  • "Navigating Private Label and Store Brand Disputes"

For those of outside the Minneapolis area, Minnesota Continuing Legal Education is also making the "Strategies for Dealing with ‘Trademark Bullies’" panel discussion available via live webinar.

We hope to see you in Minneapolis on March 2 or join us via live webinar!
