Experienced  practitioners will present the impact of the pandemic on important trademark practice issues.  The pandemic has reduced access to the courts, affecting policing and enforcement. Trademark licensees in hard hit industries such as restaurants and hotels have to deal  with minimum royalties or sales requirements, unless the licensee has an available force majeure clause or impossibility/frustration defense. The wave of bankruptcies is affecting brand owner licensors and resellers, sometimes leaving branded inventory to be resolved in the bankrupt’s estate.
