Lisa Blatt to Speak at Lanham Act 75th Anniversary Commemoration

May 2021

On June 18, 2021, Partner Lisa Blatt will speak on a panel commemorating the 75th anniversary of the passage of the Lanham Act hosted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the State Bar of Texas’s Intellectual Property Law Section. The Lanham Act is the primary federal trademark law of the United States, and in 2020, Lisa argued and won two pivotal Supreme Court cases interpreting the Act, U.S. Patent & Trademark Office v. and Romag Fasteners, Inc. v. Fossil, Inc. In, the Court held that the addition of a generic top-level domain (".com") to an otherwise generic term can create a protectable trademark, and in Romag, it held that a plaintiff in a trademark infringement suit is not required to show that a defendant willfully infringed the plaintiff's trademark as a precondition to seeking an award of the defendant’s profits.
