Join the NYIPLA Trademark Law & Practice Committee for an evening with members from the USPTO and TTAB who will provide insights on recent issues arising from fraudulent conduct emanating from China and the ways in which the USPTO is responding to these activities;  proposed changes to the TTAB standard protective order; and the TTAB’s pilot program for expediting cancellation cases asserting claims of nonuse or abandonment of a registered mark.  The presentation will be interactive with significant time reserved for audience questions.
