Trump's Presidency to Date: Effects on IP Law, Business and our Profession

How has President Trump's first 100 days affected, and will continue to affect, IP law regarding patents, trademarks, and copyrights?
This webinar will discuss the state of IP law coming into the new presidency and what, if anything, has changed or will change. A panel of IP experts will explore a broad range of IP topics, such as selections for future leadership of the USPTO Office, the US withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership, and the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice. In addition, the panel will review congruencies in historical political events effecting IP law and will further discuss the effects of presidential and legislative policies that may affect all types of IP, business and our profession.
