If you are reading this blog post it likely means you care about how intellectual property theft puts manufacturers at a competitive disadvantage. Well, the NAM cares strongly about this issue too. As part of our ongoing efforts to educate the public on the high premium manufacturers place on the value of IT to their business, the NAM is participating in a panel discussion tomorrow on the impact of information technology theft and what tactics State Attorney Generals (AG) are using to combat it. You are welcome to listen in via the live webcast.
Information technology (IT) and intellectual property (IP) theft directly harms manufacturers and compromises American competitiveness. The American Bar Association (ABA) is sponsoring this panel discussion on innovative enforcement actions designed to curb unfair competition from manufacturers that use stolen technology. The panelists include former FTC Chair Bill Kovacic, the NAM’s Tiffany Adams, and Emilio Varanini from the California Department of Justice. The panel will be moderated by Rob McKenna, the former Washington state AG.
As a leading member of the National Alliance for Jobs & Innovation (NAJI), the NAM’s participation in the panel continues our efforts to support initiatives that level the competitive playing field for manufacturers in the US. We encourage you to join us or listen in.
The event is Wednesday, June 26, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. There is no charge for the event.
