Wednesday, December 10, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This session will address the tension between constitutional protections for expressive works and the Lanham Act’s prohibition on trademark infringement, unfair competition and false advertising. 

Our speaker will discuss the expanding popularity of the Rogers v. Grimaldi First Amendment defense test and how his firm successfully used the Rogers test to defend a video game industry client in a trademark infringement action.
