Atlanta Counsel Damon Whitaker will co-present July 26 at Dury Consulting LLC’s seminar on emoji law, hosted at Bryan Cave’s Atlanta office. The presenters will examine the implications of the increasing use of emojis as a universal language, particularly in regards to free speech, criminal law intent, civil law and intellectual property law.

Whitaker will be joined by Tracey Pickett, an attorney and the owner of Eboticon LLC, and Megan Boyd, a professor at Georgia State University College of Law. His presentation will focus on intellectual property rights in emojis.

Whitaker leads the Atlanta office’s trademark and copyright registration practice. He also litigates and resolves intellectual property and other commercial litigation matters. Whitaker represents clients in a wide array of industries in disputes over trademarks and service marks, trade dress, copyrights, false advertising (including “test prove” advertising), domain names, unfair competition, and other business and technology based disputes. He has successfully tried jury cases in both federal and state courts, and is licensed to practice in Georgia and Florida.
