If you’re going to be in or around DC on January 28th, the Federalist Society is hosting this seminar that will examine
the Supreme Court’s June 1999 rulings in a trio of cases which, taken together, articulate perhaps the broadest statement of the sovereign immunity of States in American history. Two of these cases denied relief for alleged trademark and patent infringements, respectively . . .
When you consider how much of American business equity is sunk into or dependent on intellectual property, this topic is not so esoteric — especially if that IP equity is yours.
