AIPPI News-Flash (Register by 10 June 2015 for the early bird registration fee)

Announcement Description

Dear AIPLA Members,

In conjunction with the combined AIPPI World Congress and Associação Brasileira Propriedade Intellectual (ABPI) Annual Meeting, this year the IP Practice in Latin America Committee is organizing a delegation to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Our Committee is scheduling visits to the Brazilian PTO and Federal Courts, on Friday, October 9th, followed by a cocktail (tentative).  The AIPPI World Congress and ABPI Annual Meeting will take place from October 10-14, 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
For those interested in participating in our delegation and attending the AIPPI Congress, a special reduced registration fee for the AIPPI Congress will expire on June 10th (see:  https://www.aippi.org/?sel=congressreg&cf=statWelcomeMessage).  Please note that In order to participate in the Congress you must be a member of one of the National Groups of AIPPI or an independent member.  If you aren’t a member of AIPPI yet, you can join AIPPI-US when registering for the Congress or directly with AIPLA at a discounted rate.  For people who are not already members of AIPPI who’d like to attend the AIPPI congress in Rio, we recommend the join & register option available for the AIPPI Congress web site at www.aippi.net.  The cost for the join & register option is $200 (to join, for two years), plus the congress registration fee ($1500 for the early registration option, available until June 10).  Or you can join AIPPI through the AIPLA web site for $190 for two years, then sign up for the Congress.  But there may be a little lag in getting the AIPPI membership through AIPLA caught up to AIPPI.  For further details about AIPPI-US membership, please contact Philip Swain (pcs@foleyhoag.com) or  Meghan Donohoe (mdonohoe@aipla.org).
Those interested in joining the IP Practice in Latin America delegation to Brazil   this trip, please contact Rob Wells (Robert.wells@finnegan.com) and Joaquim Goulart (jgoulart@danneman.com.br).
Best regards,
Joaquim Goulart & Rob Wells
