Message From The Chair



Welcome. This will be a very active year for the University Intellectual Property Law Committee. Both I and the Vice-Chair, Shubha Ghosh, have a number of projects which we will communicate through this website. These will include ideas relating to possible articles, reports, resolutions and updates on Federal policies affecting university technology transfer, University collaborations and industry sponsored research, copyright fair use, and related topics. If you have any ideas on potential areas of interest for the Committee, please do not hesitate to let myself or Professor Ghosh know. We will be meeting monthly as a Committee on the 4th Wednesday of each month. Please join us for those calls. Liz
