I envy each of you your 3 credit hours as I sit here trying to slim the course down to 2 credit hours.
So far I’ve cut False Advertising, the Right of Publicity, Cybersquatting, and some of the ‘history’ cases. Additionally, I plan to take the information in several sections and provide it to students in a more condensed fashion – the special rules for certain types of marks, the registration process, the further circuit-by-circuit development of many defenses, and remedies.
I still need to find more to cut. I’m down to looking at individual cases, particularly where there are multiple cases for a specific concept. Any suggestions are welcome, as this is my first time teaching a stand-alone trademark course, believe it or not.
