Announcement Description

The ID committee's new subcommittee on customs   enforcement will host a committee-wide conference   call on allowing U.S. design patents to be recorded   with Customs and Border Patrol (CBP).  Currently   only copyright and trademark registrations are recordable with CBP.  The sub-committee will summarize the   issue and present a proposed Board resolution, on   which the committee as a whole will vote.  This vote will likely open on October 12, 2012.  We will announce the vote separately.

This topic was discussed at the Spring Meeting   in Austin.  Various documents gathered and   prepared by the sub-committee are on the ID   committee's website (documents page) for your   review, including AIPLA's 8/10/12 Public Comments   to the IP Enforcement Coordinator's Call for   Input on Its Draft Strategic Plan.

Special thanks to several new members who have been quite active on this issue in the new sub-committee:    Corey Beaubien, Gregory Bennett, Carine Doyle,   Donika Pentcheva and Rebecca Pumphrey.

Please join us!!

Damon Neagle, Chair
Garfield Goodrum, Vice-Chair
