2022 15th Annual BCLT Privacy Lecture: Playing the Long Game

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Encouraging public acceptance of deeply rooted commercial surveillance within U.S. society has become a cross-generational project.  Professor Joseph Turow’s industry research and survey work over the past three decades has convinced him that academics, activists, and government policymakers have been ignoring a critical development: The convergence of key practices in the family, education, the law and other institutions with widespread strategies among marketers suggest that deeply personalized data use will be an even more taken-for granted part of future generations than it is today. Prescribing realistic solutions to this discriminatory dynamic that can fracture society is a key challenge of our age.

USPTO’s Battle Against Fraudulent Trademark Filings From China: Origins, Strategies, and Ethics

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

In recent years Chinese companies have become major filers of trademarks at the USPTO. The filings have likely been in response to market demands, the growth of e-commerce, and domestic Chinese subsidies. However, the increase has also brought with it numerous unscrupulous actors on both sides of the Pacific. The result has been a surge in fraudulent USPTO trademark filings and disciplinary actions brought by USPTO, as well as cancellation of thousands of trademark applications. The increase in USPTO disciplinary activity has also come at a time that China has been increasingly concerned about misuse of IP filing subsidies and the need to increase its own controls over bad faith filings in China. These developments in Chinese trademark filings at the USPTO may lso reflects the difficulties in establishing and enforcing cross-border disciplinary rules.
