The Table Topic is on November 15 at 12 PM Pacific Time. Doug also serves on the Right of Publicity Committee for INTA.

As moderator of “Impact of ISO Standards on Brand Valuation and Evaluation,” Brian will lead a discussion on the standards published by the International Standards Organization and the implication of these standards for IP practitioners.  Brian’s Table Topic is on November 16 at 10:30 AM Pacific Time. Brian serves on the Commercialization of Brands Committee for INTA.
