Heading to Cancun Next Week

November 25, 2009 1 comment

I am off to Cancun, Mexico to participate in the 5th Global Congress Combating Counterfeiting & Piracy.  As many of you may know there have been a series of these meetings over the past 4 or 5 years sponsored by Interpol, the World Customs Organization,  the International Trademark Association, and BASCAP, the anticounterfeiting arm of the International Chamber of Commerce.  I have to say that, as usual with these things, the agenda looks a bit heavy on the government officials telling us once again about the dangers of counterfeiting.  Nevertheless, these meetings are very good for maintaining the presence of the counterfeiting on the top of the agenda of government decision makers. It is also the meetings that take place in the hallways outside of the presentation hall that can be important as well.  I will do some posts from Mexico to let you all know how it is going.
