Intellectual Property Law
Intellectual property rights are one of the most discussed global topics of today. There has been a generalized focus within the Interest Group on the intersection of intellectual property and trade law because, in addition to being a stand-alone issue, intellectual property is also increasingly being addressed as a trade issue under the global trade framework. The IPIG serves to bring members up-to-date information on the development of intellectual property law on a global basis, following and reporting significant changes in laws throughout the world relating to patents, copyrights and trade sectors; this is done through a combination of yearly newsletters, e-mail alerts, sponsorship of panel programs and the hosting of a reception at the ASIL Annual Meeting, co-sponsorship of conferences, and invitations to group members to comment and participate in meetings or initiatives relating to international intellectual property law.
