We are delighted to have sponsored the eighth annual McCarthy Institute Trademark Symposium on February 23 in Sunnyvale, California. The one-day event, titled “Trademark Law and Its Challenges 2018” brought together over 200 brand owners, trademark attorneys and public policymakers to face off on today’s most pressing issues in trademark law. With speakers from Amazon, Google, Microsoft, PepsiCo and Pinterest the debate was vibrant. Please click here to view the full agenda.

David created the firm’s Domain Name and Internet Governance practice – Anchovy over 20 years ago, and has been significantly involved in ICANN since its inception and more recently the new gTLD process.
