Welcome to the first 2018 edition of Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. I’ve always heard that the holiday season is a slow time for news. Not so in IP world.

Plus the Federal Circuit ordered the PTO to register the FUCT trademark and any other no matter how scandalous or immoral. There was much more but let’s consider those two developments then take a peek forward at 2018.
