Potential Names For Obama IP Team Swirl

Changes in several key international agencies and governments will bring a cadre of new faces to positions that address intellectual property policy, and some potential names for those spots have been circulating in recent weeks.

The naming of the new chief of the World Trade Organization IP Division is “imminent,” according to sources close to the process. And as US President Barack Obama began his first weeks in office in late January, many IP-related positions also remain unfilled.
