    Topics


     

    • Who should qualify as a spouse? Should the definitions include registered domestic partners or cohabiting couples? What happens when a marriage terminates?


    • Who should qualify as a child? We will explore presumptions of parenthood based on marital status, genetics or treating the child as your own.


    • How does adoption or assisted reproduction alter the presumptions concerning parenthood?


    • Should children born or conceived after a parent's death still be considered the child of that parent?


    • How can we fix existing documents that did not contemplate these broader family relationships?

    Description: 

     

    When trademarking a name or nickname, there are additional requirements and limitations on when and how somebody can receive mark registration. Nowhere is this more commonly an issue than in entertainment law.  Some of the more famous recent instances of this issue have involved the Kardashians, Johnny Manziel (Johnny Football), and Johnny Gadreau of the Calgary Flames (trademarking Johnny Hockey). This webinar will cover trademarking names, nicknames, and pseudonyms in the entertainment industry. It’s a brief review of the current law, industry pitfalls and issues, and how rights of publicity supplement trademark rights in this area.
