AIPLA Members and Friends:

Welcome to the 2024 AIPLA Spring Meeting, taking place from May 16-18, 2024, in Austin, Texas!

Austin, often hailed as the "Live Music Capital of the World" and a burgeoning technology hub, serves as the perfect backdrop for our meeting. Our innovative program reflects the dynamic nature of Austin, delving into the intersection between technology, the local music scene, and intellectual property hot topics.

Highlights of #aiplaSM24 include:

  • Emerging Issues at the Intersection of Patents and Artificial Intelligence: Explore the latest developments and challenges in this ever-evolving landscape.
  • Intellectual Property of Music: Navigate the intersection of music, creativity, and IP rights. Unified Patent Court Update: Stay informed on the latest advancements and updates in the UPC.
  • Trademark Hot Topics: Gain valuable insights into the current trends and issues shaping trademark law. AI and Ethics: Delve into the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI in IP.
  • DEI in IP: Join the conversation on fostering DEI in the field of IP.

AIPLA is excited to introduce Skills Workshops to the Spring Meeting. The workshops offer a chance to learn and engage with instructors in a smaller setting and focus on more specialized material. 

The Spring Meeting will feature our always highly anticipated Diversity Reception, New Member/First-Time Attendee Reception, Opening Night Reception, and many other opportunities for networking and socializing.

We look forward to welcoming you to the AIPLA 2024 Spring Meeting in Austin, where innovation, technology, music, and intellectual property will merge for an unforgettable experience! !

Ann M. Mueting, President
Sal Anastasi, Officer-in-Charge, 2024 Spring Meeting, AIPLA First Vice President
