3rd Annual Finnegan and Henderson Distinguished Lecture on Intellectual Property

Date: 10/25/07
Times: 05:00PM - 08:00PM
Description: Ordinary people, as well as businesses and entrepreneurs, use other people's trademarks all the time – legally. But perceptions are skewed by continual emphasis on the power of intellectual property rights owners to exclude, rather than on people's rights to use another's trademarks. But clients ask lawyers every day: "Can I use this mark in this way?" Professor McCarthy will discuss the various ways that those other than the trademark owner can make proper and legal use of another's marks. This involves looking at categories like non- confusing uses, fair uses and uses which do not dilute a famous mark.
