AIPPI 41st World Intellectual Property Congress
September 6 - 11, 2008
AIPPI’s (Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle) 41st World Intellectual Property Congress is being held in the United States for the first time in 33 years. AIPPI is concerned with all types of intellectual property rights (including patents, trademarks, and copyrights). It is the oldest global intellectual property association, and has the respect and ear of governments and global organizations, such as the World Intellectual Property Organization and the World Trade Organization. Since it was founded in 1897, AIPPI has been consulted (and still is) by decision makers worldwide on current intellectual property issues.
The United States Group of AIPPI is honoured to serve as host for this important biennial Congress. The Congress will address many current issues, concerning harmonization of intellectual property laws, cross border enforcement of intellectual property rights, and fundamental issues of intellectual property protection. They will have over 2,000 participants, including highly experienced and respected outside intellectual property counsel, corporate intellectual property counsel, academics and judges from around the world.
Janet MacLeod is attending this event.
