    Topic: Remedies for Copyright and Trademark Infringement

    Mr. Murphy will provide an in-depth review of the equitable and legal remedies available to litigants under the Copyright and Lanham Acts.

    Speaker: Matt Murphy

    Matt Murphy is an experienced litigator at Nilan Johnson Lewis PA. His practice includes copyright, trademark, and advertising litigation. He routinely handles breach of contract cases - including non-compete cases - and defends companies against allegations of consumer fraud. Matt also works with clients to ensure their marketing materials and advertising campaigns could not be construed as misleading or deceptive, and, in particular, that their environmental marketing claims are FTC Green Guide compliant.

    Matt’s practice also includes a variety of products liability and personal injury defense. He represents many of the local and regional ski areas against personal injury claims; a Class I railroad in personal injury and catastrophic loss cases; and several manufacturers of consumer and industrial products against design defect, manufacturing defect, and failure to warn claims.

    When Matt is not working, he can be found at home with his wife and two young children. He enjoys canoe and camping trips, long-distance running, reading, and watching historical-action series.

    Topic: The Legal History of the LGBT Movement

    Join us for a journey which is nearly a century in the making in America where civil rights for all men and women were not always guaranteed. We will examine the legal history of the movement including discussing laws which criminalized LGBT behaviors; discussing landmark cases which involved discriminatory practices against the LGBT community; and discuss current cases which may affect our communities. The goal of this discussion is to create a neutral and well rounded understanding of the LGBT movement without bias as we celebrate PRIDE in America and the 51st Anniversary of the event which started it all, or was it?

    Speaker: Ed C. Schneider, M.A.
