Annual Meeting 2014. The Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement (MIPSA) Joint Task Force enjoyed a lively and productive meeting at the Business Law Section's first Annual Meeting in Chicago on September 11, 2014.
Revised Draft. Posted below is a slightly revised, interim working draft of the model agreement, still without footnotes, along with a redlined copy showinbg changes from the September Draft. If you have any comments, please let me know. We think the text of the agreement is close to final, subject to changes that may come up in the process of drafting the report and footnotes.
Holiday Meeting Cancellations. In anticipation of the upcoming holiday season and year-end rush, we are cancelling the November and December Task Force conference call meetings (November 19 and December 17, 2014.)
Report & Footnotes. Howard Darmstadter, Elaine Ziff and I are working diligently on the footnotes and the introductory report. We should have a revised draft of the model agreement with footnotes, along with a draft report, to circulate for our next meeting, which will be Wednesday, January 24, 2015. If you would like to help with this phase of the project, please let me know.
Thank you all for your contributions and help this year, and I look forward to finishing up this project in 2015!
Kathi Allen, Co-Chair
