Industrial Designs Committee

Charter

The IPO Industrial Designs Committee will focus its work on identifying challenges in industrial design intellectual property (IDIP) ownership. The Committee will also focus on educating IPO members, the judiciary and other stakeholders regarding the value of IDIP ownership, the impact of relevant changes in the legal landscape of each of the various jurisdictions, and any new proactive measures owners and practitioners should take to maximize the potential benefits from IDIP ownership. In doing so, the Committee will monitor and review United States and foreign legislation, case law, and rule changes, and will proactively submit comments and recommendations for protecting IDIP in various jurisdictions, particularly the United States, Europe, Japan and China. Further, the Committee will coordinate its activities with other relevant IPO Committees.
