Crowell & Moring 2022 Litigation Forecast

Our Litigation Forecast 2022 explores the important litigation trends and challenges that businesses may face this year. This year, the focus is on the intersection of technology, litigation, and intellectual property, including significant changes to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board process, the impact of Google v. Oracle on copyright, new developments in the biopharma space, shifting FTC enforcement strategies, and more.

The Forecast provides a concise outlook on issues affecting companies in key areas of law: 

  • BioPharma
  • Branding
  • Copyright/Software
  • International Trade Commission
  • PTAB Litigation
  • Patent Cases
  • Trade Secrets
  • Trademark

Our cover story, “When the Disruptors Get Disrupted,” explores the critical importance of IP litigation in the competitive landscape and how technology industry participants are going beyond patents and turning to a broader range of trade secrets, copyright, trademarks, and other IP rights to protect their inventions. The piece explores how emerging technologies—from NFTs to artificial intelligence—are opening new avenues of innovation and leading to novel types of litigation. It also examines how competitor-versus-competitor litigation is taking place against the background of Washington’s growing scrutiny of Big Tech companies. Scroll below to see all articles.
