In a forum, sponsored by several Chicago-area law firms, associations and law schools, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will present the agency's trademark initiatives for 2001. It will be a unique collaboration between the USPTO and senior law firm and corporate trademark practitioners. The program will permit high level USPTO staff and senior law firm and corporate practitioners to share information and ideas, with the goal of ensuring that business needs are met as the USPTO transitions to a new e-commerce environment.
Anne H. Chasser, Commissioner of Trademarks at USPTO will deliver a major address focusing on the USPTO's plan to implement a totally electronic work processing system on Friday, February 16, 2001, in Chicago. The program is also being sponsored by Bell, Boyd & Lloyd LLC and Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione.
