Roundtable: Tribes & intellectual prop

Thursday, November 30, 2023 (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) (EST)


Join intellectual property (IP) experts, senior officials from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and other federal agencies, and Tribal representatives for an in-depth examination of consumer protection, the protection and enforcement of IP, and the impact of counterfeit goods on the economies of Native American communities.

Topics to be explored will include:

  • The scope and impact of IP crime on Native Americans
  • How to protect Native American arts and crafts
  • State and tribal cooperation on consumer protection investigations
  • International developments in the protection of traditional knowledge, cultural expressions, and genetic resources
  • Strategies for raising public awareness and changing consumer behaviors

This program has been organized by the USPTO, the National Association of Attorneys General Center for Consumer Protection, and the Attorney General Alliance, with support from the McCarthy Institute at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.

Please note that this is a hybrid program: It will be held in person at the USPTO in Alexandria, Virginia, and available for remote viewing. There is no charge to attend, but advance registration is required.
