This week in Washington IP events, the Senate and House of Representatives remain fairly quiet as we move into the lame duck period of Donald Trump’s presidency following the results of the 2020 Presidential election. The week begins with the 58th Annual Conference on IP Law sponsored by the Center for American and International Law which will feature appearances from many influential people within IP law, including USPTO Director Andrei Iancu. Elsewhere among policy institute events, Aspen Institute hosts an event to discuss the future of science policy in America while the Bipartisan Policy Center explores telehealth efforts in rural communities to see how the country can advance such technological platforms after the COVID-19 pandemic. The USPTO will also host an event on Tuesday with senior advisors at the agency to inform trademark practitioners of various ethical issues being policed at the agency.
