US-ITA Requests Comments on Protection of I/P at Trade Fairs

The International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce has requested comments from interested parties regarding issues related to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection at trade events, including policies and current practices, and problems of infringement. Comments are due by February 11, 1006.

The Department is particularly interested in:
  1. The frequency and nature of IPR infringement incidents that they believe occur at trade events, including specific instances where they have experienced problems with IPR violations at a trade event;
  2. any measures or written policies that trade events organizers currently implement pertaining to IPR protection; and
  3. the benefits, and burdens, of the Department initiating reasonable IPR policies at trade events that it supports.
