AIPLA Delegation to Cuba

AIPLA arranged for a member delegation to experience Cuba through the lens of IP law from November 26 to December 1, 2012, led by AIPLA President Jeff Lewis and AIPLA Executive Director Todd Dickinson. Since travel to Cuba is restricted by the U.S. Government, our delegation traveled under a Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulation 31 CFR §515.564 General license for professional research, which supported our access to the highest level professionals in Cuba.

AIPLA’s visit gave the delegates the only opportunity for U.S. intellectual property practitioners to engage face-to-face with Cuban officials, lawyers and leaders from government and business, to discuss key issues of intellectual property protection.
