STREAMING - For the first time in history, the U.S. Supreme Court is set today to begin hearing arguments via teleconferencing—with audio streamed live to the public. Following steps taken by many federal and state courts in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the justices have scheduled six days of remote arguments over the next two weeks. Set for 10 a.m. is a case involving Booking.com. At issue is whether generic terms can become protected trademarks by the addition of a “.com” domain. Erica Ross, an assistant to the solicitor general, will be up first. Williams & Connolly’s Lisa Blatt will argue next, for Booking.com.
