Intellectual Property Council Plans ‘White Paper’ on Protecting IP in the Aftermarket

Date: April 11, 2019
At the Q2 2019 meeting on April 2 in Dearborn, Mich., members of the AASA Intellectual Property Council (IPC) developed plans for the Council’s upcoming white paper to address IP concerns specific to the aftermarket. Discussions centered on the paper’s content and target audiences, and potential timing of its release to the industry.
 
The Council also heard an update on current legislation and regulations in Washington, D.C. from Catherine Boland, MEMA vice president of government affairs. Conrad Wong of the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office addressed growing IP activity in China and Thad Chaloemtiarana, partner, Pattishall, McAuliffe, Newbury, Hilliard & Geraldson, discussed how to protect data IP. Presentations from the IPC Q2 Meeting, sponsored by DSS, are available at the IPC member portal on the AASA website.
 
Members are urged to make plans now for the next IPC meeting, scheduled for Thursday, June 6. The Council will meet at Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Wash., and will include tours of the facility.
