The recent success of IP enforcement efforts have drawn attention to the growing need to crack down on IP theft. The final GIPC Speaker Series event of 2010 will feature John Morton, Director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Douglas Gansler, Maryland Attorney General. Our keynote speakers will highlight their susccesses in the past year and discuss their plans to continue to crack down on counterfeiting and piracy in the upcoming year. Following their presentations, a panel of key business representatives will provide an industry response to the speakers’ presentations and highlight industry priorities for 2011. Program agenda will be released in the coming days.
The GIPC Speaker Series provides a platform to raise awareness, understanding, and support for the value of intellectual property-among policymakers, congressional leaders, members of the media, as well as the general public. The series also highlights the critical role IP rights play in spurring innovation, creating jobs, driving America’s economic growth and competitiveness, and protecting consumers from substandard or counterfeit products. Speakers represent a variety of experiences, industries, and policy perspectives.
