Congressional Trademark Caucus Relaunch

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Commissioner of Trademarks Mary Boney Denison will participate in the relaunch of the Congressional Trademark Caucus at a public event held in room 215 of the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., Thursday, Oct. 8. from 2:30 - 4 p.m.

Senators Chuck Grassley and Chris Coons and Representatives Randy Forbes and Suzan DelBene, co-chairs of the Congressional Trademark Caucus, are hosting the event, which will feature a panel discussion entitled “Trademarks 101,” where participants will discuss trademark law basics, current issues, and the role of trademarks in protecting public health and safety.

The Congressional Trademark Caucus was founded to help increase awareness among Congress, the media, and the public about trademarks’ importance to global commerce and to play a role in creating public policy dialogues on the responsibilities of state and federal governments and brand owners in decreasing the presence of counterfeit goods in the marketplace.
