The Intellectual Property in the Trees workshops provide a forum for scholars to discuss their ideas and to receive feedback from readers who take a genuine interest in their papers.
Professor Glynn Lunney will workshop his paper Trademark’s De-Evolution: From Consumer Welfare to Corporate Welfare. He joins us from Tulane University School of Law, where he specializes in patent, copyright and trademark law, unfair competition and contracts.. He has a diverse background that includes expertise in intellectual property, engineering and economics.
After receiving a petroleum engineering undergraduate degree, he worked two years as a production engineer before attending law school. He clerked for Judge John Minor Wisdom on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals then joined the Tulane Law faculty in 1991. Lunney earned master’s and doctorate degrees in economics from Tulane University while teaching at the Law School.
He has written extensively about intellectual property issues and received the Sumter Marks Award in 2000 and 2002 in recognition of research. He also was named C. J. Morrow Research Professor of Law for 2001-02.
