Affiliate Peter Golder will join a McCarthy Institute webinar to discuss the Supreme Court’s recent decision in US Patent and Trademark Office v. Booking.com. Professor Golder, who coauthored an amicus brief in the case, will discuss the importance of archival evidence in the court’s decision, which rejected the government’s assertion that a generic term combined with “.com” automatically rendered the resulting term generic and ineligible for trademark protection.
