The AIPPI-US Division of AIPLA, was originally founded as a non-profit organization in 1930 and has approximately 250 members, including both individuals and corporations. AIPPI International operates mainly through national groups such as the US Group, which now exist in over 50 countries. Pioneering work has been done in recent years on such topics as the protection of computer software, domain names and patent protection for biotechnology (members of the US Group were in the forefront of these activities). It is also very active in trademark and copyright issues. All existing AIPPI Resolutions and pending Working Questions are listed in detail on the AIPPI website at www.aippi.org. There are separate dues required to be a member of the AIPPI-US Division.

The Committee plans the main educational tracks of the Annual and Spring AIPLA Meetings (“Stated Meetings”). Each Stated Meeting includes educational content that establishes AIPLA as the leading educational provider in the intellectual property area. The Committee identifies and recommends to the Board of Directors the educational programs to be conducted during the Stated Meetings. The educational programs must be relevant, timely and presented by well-qualified and diverse speakers. In order to plan the educational tracks, the Committee selects coordinators who will locate and identify a moderator and speakers who will present the selected programs. The Committee meets during each AIPLA meeting and has conference calls throughout the year to plan and organize the educational tracks.
