IP Partner Angelo Mazza Spoke at IQPC 20th Anti-Counterfeiting & Brand Protection Summit
IP Partner Angelo Mazza spoke at the IQPC 20th Anti-Counterfeiting & Brand Protection Summit from January 29-31, 2018 in San Francisco. The event brought together brand leaders, customs officials, law enforcement and legal counsel to discuss best practices and strategies for fighting counterfeiters. Angelo serves on IQPC’s 2018 Advisory Board.
His first workshop was titled “Connecting the Dots with Law Enforcement: Developing Effective Brand Protection Training Programs to Bolster Anti-Counterfeiting Efforts.” It focused on how brand owners can engage with law enforcement at all levels as part of developing a comprehensive brand protection program.
Angelo was also a part of a “Fireside Chat: Implementing Controls to Protect Your Brand from Ongoing & Potential Future Risks.” This discussion focused on the potential for counterfeiting opportunities created by the advent of new products and technologies and new brand protection strategies to deal with them.
He also led “Fireside Chat: The Evolution of CBP in Dealing with the Seismic Shift in Ecommerce Platforms.” Angelo partnered with a U.S. Customs and Border Protection representative to discuss the future of border enforcement and what can brands do to improve the process.
Angelo works extensively with law enforcement on IP related crimes. He counsels clients in developing and implementing enforcement strategies in a variety of settings. He has organized and conducted training sessions for CBP, ICE and the FBI in the United States and for law enforcement in almost all 50 states.
